Mini Cherry And Lemon Drizzle Cakes: How To Make:

Who can resist this bite sized version of a favourite cake with a jewel like cherry in the centre.

Makes 18

Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cooking time: 10-12 minutes

What You Need:

50 g (2 oz) soft margarine

50 g (2 oz) caster sugar

75 g (3 oz) self-raising flour

1 egg

1 lemon, grated rind and juice

18 British cherries, about 125 g (4½ oz) in total, stalks and stones removed

75 g (3 oz) granulated sugar

Method:

1.) Firstly, preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4. Lightly brush 18 sections of 2 x 12 mini muffin tins with a little sunflower or vegetable oil.

2.) Add the soft margarine, caster sugar, flour, egg and lemon rind to a bowl and beat together until smooth.

3.) Divide the mixture between the oiled muffin tin sections and press a cherry into the centre of each. 

4.) Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cakes are lightly risen and golden brown. 

5.) Meanwhile mix the lemon juice and granulated sugar together in a bowl.

6.) Allow the cakes to cool for a few minutes then loosen the edges with a knife and transfer to a plate or baking sheet lined with non-stick baking paper. 

7.) Quickly spoon the lemon juice mixture over the hot cakes and leave for the syrup to soak in and the sugar to form a crunchy topping. 

Serve warm or cold.
