Elderflower And Lemon Drizzle Cake...


I love, love, love lemon cake and today Im sharing a Elderflower & Lemon Drizzle Cake as a guest post from Belvoir.

Serves 12

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 45-50minutes

Ingredients
  • 225g/8oz butter, softened
  • 225g/8oz caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 225g/8oz self raising flour, sifted
  • zest and juice 1 lemon
  • 100ml/4floz Belvoir’s elderflower cordial
  • 30ml/ 2 tbsp granulated sugar
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/ Fan160C/Gas Mark 4.
  • Grease a (20cm) round, deep loose-based tin and base line with baking parchment.
  • Place the butter sugar and lemon zest in a large bowl.
  • Use an electric whisk to beat the butter and sugar together untl they are pale and fluffy.
  • Gradually add the eggs, whisking well between additions and adding 2 tbsp of the flour with the last egg - this will prevent curdling.
  • Sift over the remaining flour, then gently fold in with a metal spoon along with 2 tbsp hot water.
  • Spoon into the prepared tin, level the surface and bake for 45-50 mins or until it is shrinking away from the sides of the tin.
  • A fine skewer inserted in the centre should come out clean.
  • Cool in the tin for 5 mins.
  • Squeeze the lemon juice, then sieve to remove the bits, stir in the cordial.
  • Use the fine skewer to prick the cake all over, pour over the syrup then sprinkle over the sugar - it should sink in but leave a crunchy crust.
  • Leave to cool completely, before removing the cake from the tin.
  • Serve in wedges.

Lemon And blackberry Traybake...


Dotted with fresh blackberries, this light sponge tray bake is much lower in saturated fat than traditional cakes as it is made with sunflower oil rather than butter, with a surprise of grated beetroot for added moistness.

This means not much going out and lots of baking cakes inside today. Got to take the children to school so I might just nip to the gym for a quick run on the treadmill first.
