A ‘Welcome to The Glade’ Lemon Drizzle cake

image

We were the sixth family to move into The Glade. Most families that have moved in since have been welcomed with a Lemon Drizzle cake.

(If you are reading this and you have moved in and didn’t received a cake,  let me know and I will hasten to rectify the situation ASAP).

People are often impressed with this particular cake, however in the spirit of sharing, I am about to take one for the team and, give the game away about how simple this cake really is.

This recipe is so old that I have had to convert it to metric.

Ingredients

Cake

170g self raising flour

110g butter

1 teaspoon of baking powder

170g sugar

2 large eggs

6 tablespoons of milk

Finely grated rind of a lemon or 2 drops of lemon extract

Toothpick

Drizzle

110g sugar

Juice of large lemon

Method

1. Pre heat the oven to 160c

2. Add all the cake ingredients together in a bowl and mix, see photo below for proof

3. Pop the mix into a lined cake tin, I use a round one but this will fit into a 2lb  loaf tin too

4. Bake for 35-40 minutes until a toothpick comes out of the centre clean

5.  When the cake is in the oven make the drizzle by adding the freshly squeezed lemon juice to the sugar and mix

6. As soon as it is baked take a toothpick and make lots of holes in the top of the cake

7. Pour the drizzle mixture over the top

Enjoy!

*Tip: Before squeezing lemons put them in the microwave for 30 seconds then you will get more juice!

  1. Lemon drizzle cake is my favourite. I use a Mary Berry recipe that never fails. I plan to make one today to use up some lemons lurking at the bottom of my fridge.
    Have a nice pancake day!!!

    1. Hi Kathy, thank you so my much for your comment. Ah yes Queen Mary Berry, anything by her is always lovely. I inherited this recipe so long ago and it’s so easy too, that I never think to try any others – but I must be more adventurous! Thanks again and have a lovely day Lisa x
