Portly Cooks | Lemon Drizzle Cake

Lemon drizzle cake is a classic for a reason and it’s so simple to make!

  • 170g/6oz Self Raising Flour
  • 170g/6oz Butter
  • 170g/6oz Caster Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 Lemons
  • 1 tbsp Icing Sugar

Using a hand mixer, mix together the flour, butter, sugar and eggs to make a batter. Zest one of the lemons and add this to the batter. Transfer to a loaf tin and bake at 180c for 30-35 mins. Leave to cool.

Once cooled make holes in the top of the cake with a fork. Juice the lemons and mix the juice with the icing sugar. Drizzle the lemon juice into the cake, top with a little more zest and some icing sugar.
