Lemon Drizzle Cake(large)
6oz softened butter (make sure it’s really soft)
9oz SR flour
1.5tsp baking powder
9oz golden caster sugar
3 large eggs
9 tbsp milk
finely grated rind of 2 regular unwaxed lemons
juice of 2 regular lemons
6oz golden caster sugar
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C/gas mark 4
I use an oblong tin which measures 30 x 20cm baking dish, lined with baking parchment.
Tip all cake ingredients into large mixing bowl and beat for 2-3 minutes; mixture will drop easily off spoon.
Spoon mixture into tin and smooth with back of spoon. Bake for 30-40 minutes until golden & firm to the touch.
Beat together icing ingredients(lemon juice & caster sugar) and pour over the cake while it is still HOT.
Cool in tin & cut into squares.
