LEMON DRIZZLE CAKE



Any recipe which calls for 4 ingredients certainly has my approval, especially if it ends up tasting as good as this recipe does. I love lemon in cakes and desserts so I was initially attracted by the ingredients, and then when I the saw 4 items listed I knew I had to give it a go.
Method is so easy too.


Beat sugar and butter until creamy.
Add eggs, one at a time, mix in. Add the sifted flour and lemon zest until completely mixed.
Pour into loaf tin and bake for 40-50mins until a skewer comes out clean.
Mix together lemon juice and sugar while cake cools in tin. Pierce cake all over with a skewer and drizzle over cake. Leave until cold. it will have a crisp topping.
Slice and serve. This is one of the easiest recipes I have made in a long time and I can see it quickly becoming a family favourite.

........and I'm sure it could become a favourite in your family too.

I'm very interested in this recipe:) Can I ask though, does the cake end up soggy? I'm not a lemon drizzle cake fan, but I like the idea of this cake, if it's just beautifully lemony but not soggy:)

I would describe the cake as moist but definitely not soggy. Let me know if you try it and what you think.
