Cook With Me | Lemon Drizzle Cake



This week’s recipe is one of my favourites. It is a Lemon Drizzle Cake. Easy to make, looks great and tastes even better!

Here is what you need:
3 eggs
170gr Self-raising flour
170gr Caster sugar
170gr Butter
1 tsp Baking Powder
110gr Icing Sugar
2 Lemons

Here is how you make it:




Beat the Butter and Sugar together until they are well combined.

Add the eggs one at a time to the butter and sugar mixture.

Sift in the flour and baking powder and add the zest of two lemons, until you get a nice even mixture. Pop into a tin and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 30 to 45 minutes.




Once the cake is done, pop out of the tin and set on a cooling rack for a couple minutes. In the meantime squeeze the juice of 2 lemons, I used 3 since they were a bit small, and add the icing sugar. Mix well until you do not have any lumps. Whilst the cake is still hot, skewer multiple times and then pour the lemon mixture all over.



What you are left with is a sticky lemon drizzled cake that is great to have with afternoon tea or any other time you want a sweet treat!
