Lemon Cake with Lemon Drizzle 

Hey guys!

Thought I’d do some baking tonight and this is what I made. I have actually missed baking because I haven’t been able to find time in the past few months. Now that my semester is over I’v got a whole summer to do anything I want and thought I’d start with baking. This cake was one of the easiest I’v made. You just chuck all the ingredients in a bowl, mix and bake. It is a fresh cake because lemon is a refreshing flavour. It’s not very heavy or rich. It’s a light, fluffy cake drenched in the drizzle and so the inside is just perfect. On to the recipe…

Ingredients for the cake

  1. 170g self-raising flour
  2. 170g caster sugar
  3. 170g softened butter
  4. 1 tsp baking powder
  5. 3 eggs
  6. Zest of 2 lemons

Ingredients for the drizzle

  1. Juice of 2 lemons
  2. 110g icing sugar or confectionary sugar


1) Weigh out the ingredients and pre heat the oven to 180C (around 356 Fahrenheit)

 2) Add the ingredients for the cake into a large bowl and mix using a hand mixer like I did or using a wooden spoon.

3) Once mixed (4-5 mins using the mixer), add it in to a loaf cake tin and bake for 30-45 minutes (180C)

4) Let it rest and poke the cake using a skewer.

5) To make the drizzle. Combine the lemon juice and the icing sugar.

 6) Pour it over the cake and let it soak.

 7) It’s done! Now just cut a piece and enjoy.


Hope you enjoyed this! Give it a go. For first time bakers, this would be perfect to try out.
