Lemon Drizzle Cake(large)
Why I Love This Recipe
Made for my knitting group, loved by all
Ingredients You'll Need
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.
