I love the taste of lemon and always have – I was the child who ate the lemons out of a glass of coke and didn’t squirm.
So I thought why not bake a lemon drizzle cake. This is the easiest bake I have done and apart from the cooking is relatively quick so how did I do it….
225g Unsalted Butter
225g Caster Sugar
Zest of 1 Lemon
225g of Self-Raising Flour
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
Beat together the butter and sugar until pale and creamy.
Add 1 egg in at a time
Sift in the flour and then add the lemon zest
Pour into a loaf tin and bake for 45-50 mins
It’s that simple!!
For the topping I whipped up some lemon juice and icing sugar so it had a real sharp kick to it and then drizzled it over the cake once it was cooled.
