  • Grease and flour a round 20 cm cake tin.
  • Combine sugar, oil, and lemon zest, then gradually whisk in the eggs.
  • Fold in the semolina, baking powder, nuts, and milk, mixing well.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and bake in a preheated 160C oven for 30-35 minutes or until just set and golden.
  • Let cake cool in pan 15 minutes.
  • While the cake is baking, make the syrup by boiling the sugar in 200 ml water for 8-10 minutes or until clear ans syrupy.
  • Add lemon juice and return to a rapid simmer, cooking for another few minutes.
  • Poke the cake all over with fork and then spoon the warm syrup over, a little at a time, letting it soak in- you want to get all of it to soak inches.
  • Place berries in a small pan with the powdered sugar and 3 Tbsp water and heat gently until the sugar dissolves and the berries start to soften up.
  • (Taste and add a bit more sugar if the berries are very tart).
  • Serve cake warm, cut into wedges with the warm berries on top.
