Lemon Drizzle Cake

We've had gorgeous weather here in England this week and I really wanted to bake something summery. I love lemon flavoured things and so I was instantly drawn towards lemon drizzle cake, a really light and lemony cake that you feel like eating in hot weather. This recipe just uses a basic cake recipe and is drizzled with a simple lemon sugar mixture. Perfect for a summer time treat! 


Recipe
4 eggs
225g self raising flour
225g margarine
225g caster sugar
Zest of 2 lemons
For the drizzle
85g caster sugar
Juice of 1 1/2 lemon


Preheat the oven to 180/160c fan. Firstly, cream together the margarine and sugar until creamy.
Add the eggs and whisk into the butter/sugar mixture until combined and smooth. 


Add the flour and gently fold into the mixture. 

Finely grate the zest of 2 lemons and add to the mixture. 


Add to a prepared loaf tin and bake for about 40 minutes until golden brown and a skewer comes out clean.


While the cake is still warm, make the drizzle by combining the lemon juice and sugar. Pour all over cake. 



Enjoy!
