  1. They look nice and simple to make. I like the idea of lemon curd in the middle. We normally have a large lemon drizzle cake at home, it never lasts. I use pure spread instead of butter, but will definitely give this a try. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Great recipe. Put some homemade lemon marmalade in the middle and fresh cream topping to make butterfly cakes. Delicious!!
