Lemon Drizzle Cake

Having made a Lemon Drizzle Cake for my Sister in Law to take home for my Father in Law, Master M decided that I should make one for him,which I did.  It didn't last very long so today I have made him another, it is such an easy cake to make.

Here is the recipe if any of you fancy trying it.....

Cake ingredients:

4oz softened butter (make sure it's really soft)

6oz self raising flour

1tsp baking powder

6oz golden caster sugar

2 large eggs

6 tbsp milk

finely grated rind of a large unwaxed lemon


juice of a large lemon

4oz golden caster sugar

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C/gas mark 4

2. Cake can be made in an oblong tin which measures 9" x 8", lined with baking parchment. could also be made in a round tin, 7 or 8" is fine.

3. Tip all cake ingredients into large mixing bowl and beat for 2-3 minutes; mixture will drop easily off spoon.

4. Spoon mixture into tin and smooth with back of spoon. Bake for 30-40 minutes until golden and firm to the touch.

5. Beat together icing ingredients and pour over the cake while it is still HOT.

6. Cool in tin and cut into squares or slices.

Master M also likes it warm. Hope you enjoy it too.
