Madeira Cake is a staple in traditional English baking. Madeira Cake has a firm but a wonderful light texture. Madeira Cake does not get its name from the Madeira Islands but instead from Madeira wine which was popular in England during the time of its creation. This cake is great for serving at tea parties or gatherings as its firm texture allows it to be sliced neatly and topped with butter, jam or cream.
