Hannah’s Easy Peasy Lemon Drizzle cake.

This is by far the best Lemon Drizzle cake I’ve eaten.

For the cake:

  • 3 Eggs
  • Self raising flour
  • 1/2 heaped tsp baking powder
  • Castor Sugar
  • Margarine (or butter)
  • 1 Lemon

Weigh the eggs in their shells. Then add the same weight of flour, sugar & marg.
Beat together sugar & Marg. Add the eggs one at a time. Fold in flour, baking powder, grated zest of lemon and half the juice. Place in lined loaf tin. Put in hot oven 170c for approx 30-40 mins. Remove from oven, poke holes in top with skewer and drizzle remaining lemon juice over top of hot sponge.

For the drizzle:

  • 1 Lemon
  • 100g Granulated sugar

Mix together lemon juice and sugar and pour over cake while still warm but not hot!
