Lemon Drizzle Cake – Recipe!

OK so i’m going to tell you how I make my Lemon Drizzle, very simple for those that don’t know, very quick to make and doesn’t last long after 😉 i’m constantly being nagged by my mum to make them 😛

so….. The ingredients you will need are….

4oz Margerine (like Stork)

6oz Self raising flour

6oz Caster sugar

1 Lemon

4 Tablespoons of milk

2 Eggs

3 Tablespoons of Icing sugar

I use one of those red silicone cake moulds, I got mine from ASDA, they seem the easiest to use but you can use any loaf tin.

Mix the flour, sugar, marge, milk and eggs into a fair sized mixing bowl then grate the lemon zest into the mix aswell.

You can also enlist in some little hands to help (though I discovered 8 months may be too young ;))

Once all mixed and no lumps from the butter, pour the mixture into your loaf tin.

Then it simply goes into a pre- heated oven at 180 – for up to 45 minutes… please remember everyones oven is different, at my parents they have a turbo oven so i put it on 160 – 170 and also adjust time accordingly.

When its cooked it will look something like this..

Remove it and let it stand in the silicone mould for a few minutes whilst you make the yummy drizzle!

In a small saucepan you need to squeeze the lemon that you have grated so you have all the juice and then add the icing sugar and gently mix over a low heat being careful not to let it burn as it will burn quick if the heat it too high.

Rease the cake on a plate and prick little holes over it using a cocktail stick or similar then generously pour the syrup all over the cake letting the lemon drizzle soak all the way in! ENJOY

  1. I far prefer the drizzle made with icing sugar, if its made with granulated or even castor sugar it’s gritty on the tongue and crunchy
    and it doesn’t happen often but if you can…. leave cake a day or two, the lemon syrup makes it so moist it melts in the mouth!!
