lemon drizzle cake

Having looked for several Drizzle Cake recipes and not finding one I was happy with, I made my own very simple version: it's a basic cake mix, with a lemon syrup drizzled over the top.


6oz s.r. flour
6oz butter
6oz sugar
3 eggs
lemon zest and juice
caster sugar

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, lemon zest, a little juice, then flour, making sure you only mix enough to incorporate the flour.
Pour into a cake tin and bake for about 30 minutes at 180 degrees c until it's spongy and light, and a skewer comes out clean.

During the last few minutes of cooking, make the drizzle:
Put the juice and two lemons some zest, and enough sugar to sweeten into a pan and melt until bubbly and hot.

When the cake comes out, stab several times with a fork, and, whilst still hot, pour over the drizzle. Let it soak into the top before eating!
