Let’s Bake! (Lemon Drizzle Cake Edition) – Collab with Hannah

I haven’t done a baking post in so long! This one is a collab with Hannah at Just Another Day. We decided to both do a baking post where we would swap traditional recipes form the UK/NZ respectively. Hannah decided to bake some Hokey Pokey Biscuits, and I decided to try my hand at Lemon Drizzle Cake!

The recipe I used can be found here.

lemon cake 01

  • 225g butter
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • lemons (to zest and juice)

lemon cake 02

Mix together the butter and sugar.

Add the eggs one at a time, and slowly mix together. Add lemon zest, and sift in flour.

Pour the mixture into a loaf tin and bake for 45-50 minutes at 180 degrees. It’s ready when a toothpick comes out clean. For me this took around 50 minutes. It was a little burnt around the edge, but I wanted to make sure that it was completely done.

It smelt so good when it came out! As I was waiting for it to cool, I made some glaze from lemon juice and caster sugar. I poked holes all over the cake and poured the glaze on top. That way, it sinks into the cake, and has a nice crunchy topping once the glaze sets.

Not gonna lie, this tasted amazing!! Rory and I have had quite a few pieces already, and I’m definitely bookmarking the recipe for another day!
