Recipes – Lemon Drizzle Cake

The second thing me and Eli made today on our little baking day was Lemon Drizzle Cake. Cliff has been asking me to make it for a few days now so I thought it would be a nice treat for him! It is a cake that always goes down well in our house, everyone loves it. It stays good for about a week (if it survives that long!) and is super moist.



225g butter
225g sugar
4 eggs
Zest of 1 lemon
225g self raising flour

For the drizzle

Juice of 2 lemons
100g sugar


Heat the oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4.
Cream together the butter and sugar.
Beat in 1 egg at a time until combined.
Gradually mix in the flour and lemon zest.
Pour the mix into a greased loaf tin.
Cook for about 45 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Once cooked turn out into a cooling rack.
Whilst cooling make the drizzle by heating the lemon and sugar on the job until the sugar has dissolved.
Place the cake on a serving plate and spoon the drizzle over the cake and leave to soak in.

Enjoy 🙂
