How To Make A Gluten Free Lemon & Poppy Seed Drizzle Cake:

What You Need:

For The Cake:

1x 400g Delicious Alchemy Vanilla Sponge Mix

180g of soft unsalted butter or dairy free alternative

3 large eggs

Zest of 1 lemon

2 tsp/5g poppy seeds

For The Lemon Drizzle Syrup:

Juice of 1 lemon (55-60ml)

50g caster sugar

What You Do:

Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan. Grease and line the base of a 20cm (8 inch) deep round cake tin with greaseproof paper.

Put the cake mix, soft butter (or dairy free alternative), eggs, lemon zest and poppy seeds into a bowl. Beat together with an electric whisk for 15 secs. Stop, scrape down the bowl and mix for a further 10 secs.

Step 2:

Spread the mixture into the tin and smooth into an even layer. Bake for 35-40 mins until lightly golden brown and springy to the touch. While it bakes, make the lemon syrup.

Step 3:

To make the lemon syrup, stir the lemon juice and sugar together in a small bowl. Set aside while the cake bakes, by which time the sugar should have dissolved.

Step 4:

Once baked, leave the cake to cool in the tin for 10 mins before pricking the top of the cake all over with a skewer. Gradually spoon the lemon syrup evenly over the surface of the cake. Leave to cool completely before running a knife around the edge of the cake and removing from the tin.
