Tucc Lemon Gateaux

I met Tucc during a school reunion and although we were not together during our school years we hit it off and as she lives abroad we kept in touch through fb, when she came back to Malta for a visit we had to meet so I invited her over for lunch . I decided to make a lemon gateaux for dessert and she enjoyed it very much so I’m calling  Tucc lemon gateaux for her, from now on when I make it I will remember her. 😉


175g butter or margarine

175g sifted self raising flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

175g sugar


2 tablespoons milk or lemon juice

zest of 2 lemons

5 tablespoons lemon curd

1 tub mascarpone

1 small packet panna da montare

1 tablespoon icing sugar

1/2 teaspoon lemon essence or some  limoncello

strawberries ,chocolate vermicelli and chocolate crispies to decorate



Put the flour,baking powder,butter,sugar,3 eggs,milk and zest in mixing bowl and beat until creamy.

Spread batter in greased springform tin ,I used a square one.

Bake in preheated 170C oven for about 30mins .

When still warm pierce the top with the handle of a wooden spoon making holes all over the surface and spread the lemon curd over it so it melts and seeps in the holes.

When its cold,beat the mascarpone and panna ,add the icing sugar and lemon essence or limoncello.

Spread over the lemon curd,decorate with the chocolate vermicelli ,strawberries and chocolate crispies or your choice of decoration .
