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.
- 225g butter
- 225g caster sugar
- 4 eggs
- lemons (to zest and juice)
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!
Be sure to check out Hannah’s post as well to see how her Hokey Pokey Biscuits came out!
