    Have to try this… TODAY! I just love that about your son pressing the call button… absolutely priceless! Funny my 4 yo asked me this morning if his 2 yo cousin is still a toddler and what exactly is he? I told him that toddler covered one to two yos and he would probably be called a young boy (couldn’t say “Little” or he would have flipped!)… don’t know if this definition is right though?

    Where did you find the organic limes Caitriona? This looks like a keeper in every sense. :-)

    I’m forever having to nuke the butter for a few seconds because I forgot to get it out of the freezer, let alone the fridge. And I use Greek yoghurt almost interchangeably with sour cream/creme fraiche.

    • I also use greek yoghurt a lot in baking, but this cake particularly needs the creme fraiche, I think it adds to the flavour and texture. I got the limes in Lidl a couple of weeks back, I couldn’t believe my luck. Bought a load and rammed them into the fridge. You know how it is! If I see them there again I’ll text you!

    That looks so delicious I must give it a try! I also found your Gur Cake recipe, thanks!

    I do hope your mischievous 2 year old is settling into his big boy bed.

    Fab recipe & def one I will have to try when my almost 2 year old is having her nap! Little tip I picked up somewhere to quickly soften fridge hard butter is to cube it & put into blood temperature water, works a treat!

    • Oh sure I’ve been known to microwave it/stick it on top of the dishwasher while it’s warm/try loads of tricks. I think though if I don’t warm it naturally it makes for a different flavour!

    I made this yesterday and brought it into work today. Gone in less than an hour and everybody loved it. Will definitely make this again as it was so simple.
