Lemon Cake…

Lemon cake anyone? I must admit, I am a huge cake fan and I love a bit of lemon cake, yummy!!

Lemon drizzle cake is amongst my favourites, that is why I am sharing a slice with you today 🙂

Lemon Cake:

Makes 12

What you need:

For the syrup:


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180c/350f/gas mark 4.
  2. Grease an 18-cm/7-inch square tin and line with non-stick baking paper.
  3. Place the eggs, caster sugar, and margarine in a mixing bowl and beat hard until smooth and fluffy.
  4. Stir in lemon rind, then fold in flour.
  5. Stir in milk, mix evenly, then spoon into the prepared cake tin, smooth so nice and level.
  6. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until golden brown and firm to touch.
  7. Remove from the oven and stand the tin on a wire rack.

To make the syrup:

  1. Place the icing sugar and lemon juice in a small saucepan and heat gently, stirring until all the sugar dissolves, do not boil.
  2. Prick the warm cake all over with a skewer, and spoon the hot syrup evenly over the top, allowing it to be absorbed.
  3. Leave to cool completely in the tin, then turn out the cake, cut into 12 pieces and dust with a little icing sugar before serving.

This is not my recipe all credits go to The Big Book Of Baking.
