A lovely light classic Portuguese cake. Please clarify step 2, beat 20 minutes or until...? Ensure that it cooks right through for the 40 minutes.. Sometimes it stays a bit tacky on top!

I make this cake quite often, but I always add gratted lemon zest and if I dont have lemons at hand I add in orange zest, it give the cake a great flavour and wonderful smell. This cake is a must in the Holiday seasons. Goes good with just about anything.

I made this for my husbands birthday and he loved it. I served it topped with whipped cream and strawberries.
