Lemon Drizzle

It’sย as easy as one, two, three..

This lemon drizzle cake isย as easy to make as it is to devour!

What’s best about it is that you’re most likely to find all the ingredients in your pantry.


What you’ll need:

225g soften unsalted butter

225g caster sugar

4 eggs

Finely grated zest of 1 lemon

225g self-raising flour


Preheat your oven to 180C/fan.

1. Beat together the butter and caster sugar until pale and creamy, then slowly add the eggs one at a time.

2. Add the sifted self-raising flour and lemon zest, mixing until fully incorporated.

3. Pour mixture into a lined loaf tin and bake for 40-45 minutes.

Do this when it’s still warm to let itย soak up that lovely drizzle!

Resist the temptation to tuck it. I promise you it’s best when cooled down.

Go on, make yourself a cup of tea and enjoy a slice!
