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
4 Tablespoons of milk
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
