Sound really interesting Chookie. My MIL loves cakes but as she is such a good cook herself, I try to make things that are a little "different". Thank you  ;D

This looks lovely and lemony Chookie. My family would love it. I think I will make it when brother comes over from Canberra at Christmas.  He LOVES lemon butter type things.

Cookie1, I've got another lemon cake (more like a tart ),  called Belgium Lemon Teacake.   Will convert and test when I have a moment. (  Off to Melb. tomorrow to baby sit Oscar   Could be away for the rest of the week. ) This one has a crust top and bottom with lemon butter in the middle.   Looks like a good one to make and freeze, or send home with brother !

Hi Cookie1  1 left handed,  exteacher to another !  I don't think flour would work.   Corn flour might as it has a similar texture to potato flour.      What is the problem with Potato flour ?

No problem at all, I just don't have any. I'm making the cake this afternoon and shopping this morning so I'll rectify the problem.
Thanks

The potato flour is in the supermarkets with all the other flours.  Don't need to go the specialty shops now.

I made this today Chookie, and it sure does rise.  I couldn't get any potato flour so I used cornflour. I'm afraid I woosed out on beating the egg whites in the TMX. While the eggs and sugar were beating I did the egg whites with an electric beater. I had intended to do them on the TMX but time was against me today and I needed the cake for tomorrow.
Everything else was done as you said on the TMX.
I haven't tasted it but it looks amazing.
Thank you. :-*

Cookie   1                   Really glad you liked the Lemon Feather Cake,  it keeps very well in a closed container in the fridge.    Handy to know that the cornflour works.   I gave the recipe to a local cafe and they make a passionfruit sponge .
