You will need:

How to make:

  1. Beat the cream cheese and icing sugar together until smooth.

  4. Preheat the oven to 180⁰C/fan oven 160⁰C/Gas Mark 4.
  5. Lightly grease and base line with greaseproof paper two 18cm/7inch sandwich tins.
  6. Cream the butter, sugar, ginger paste and lemon rind together in a large bowl until pale and well combined.
  7. Gradually beat in the eggs adding a little flour after each addition if the mixture starts to curdle.
  8. Sift any remaining flour over the mixture and fold in with a large metal spoon.
  9. Divide the mixture between the tins and level the surface with the back of a spoon.
  10. Bake for 20-25 minutes until risen golden and firm to the touch.
  11. Allow to cool in the tins for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
  12. Peel the paper off the backs of the sponges.
  13. Spread half the cream cheese mixture over the tops of each sponge right up to the edges.
