Lemon Drizzle Cake

I made this cake recently it is super simple, you know me and cakes :-) and was eaten in no time always a good sign. I just adore lemon cakes so fresh and yet light at the same time.


  • 4 oz butter 
  • 4 oz sugar 
  • 4 oz self raising flour
  • 2 eggs 
  • juice of 1/4 lemon
  • 2 teaspoon of grated lemon peel
  • one teaspoon lemon peel for glaze
  • 2 tablespoon of confectioners sugar
  • hot water


  1. cream the sugar and butter till light and fluffy
  2. mix in the eggs and flour, lemon peel and juice
  3. bake at 375 for 20-30 minutes, until a knife comes out clean 
  4. let the cake cool
  5. then mix confectioners sugar with hot water and the lemon peel to make a glaze, pour over the cake and let cool
  6. enjoy :-)

This little cake tastes like summer to me
