As most of you know I do have a bit of a thing for lemons, so it would only be right that my most favourite cake is the classic Lemon drizzle. This is such a simple recipe that makes the most delicious light and zesty sponge.
2 large eggs
Self raising flour
1 large lemon
Weigh the 2 eggs and then measure out the same weight in the self raising flour, butter and caster sugar.
Mix all the above ingredients together.
Grate the lemon and add to the mixture
Put the mixture in to a greased loaf tin until the middle sets, approx 50 minutes at 180 degrees.
Whilst your cake is in the oven, squeeze the juice from the lemon and add in 85g of caster sugar or icing sugar.
When the cake comes out of the oven use a cocktail stick/skewer to make holes in the top and pour over the sugar mixture.
