LEMON DRIZZLE LOAF

Lemon drizzle has got to be one of my favourite cakes and we have made it SO much over the past few months I thought I would share our recipe as I know a lot of you are loving our baking posts here :)


WHAT YOU NEED

LEMON LOAF

4 Eggs
225G butter
225G caster sugar
350G self raising flour
Lemon juice - I use the bottle ones as they last a bit longer in the cupboard :)

LEMON DRIZZLE TOPPING

Lemon juice
Caster sugar


LETS GET BAKING

Preheat your oven to gas mark 5/180C

Add your sugar and soft butter to a bowl and mix together , then add your eggs and do the same. We use a stand alone mixer , but a whisk is absolutely fine :)

Now add half of your flour in then give it a mix, then add the other half and do the same . I give it quite a big whizz on turbo/full speed which makes the cake super fluffy .

Add in your lemon juice , this depends on how much you like lemon :) we put about a third of the bottle , but always taste test the batter until you get it to your liking.

Pop the mixture into a sprayed loaf tin, and in the oven for 30 minutes or until golden on the top.

I then put it in tin foil for a few hours to cool down , and by putting it in the tin foil it keeps all its moisture in and is so soft.



Once cooled down , make up your lemon drizzle topping with caster sugar and lemon juice to however thick you want it , drizzle over and serve :)

Do let me know if you recreate this recipe and tag me on Instagram @kira_hutt if you do .
