Lemon Drizzle Cake

My little sister was also in a baking mood so decided to do a Lemon Drizzle Cake but with not a lot of drizzle. She didn’t understand the drizzle part and didn’t add all of the lemon drizzle on to make the cake glisten. She didn’t want me to interfere so I couldn’t help. Nevertheless it tasted pretty good.



88g self-raising flour

½ teaspoon Baking Powder

88g Stork Packet

88g Caster Sugar

2 medium eggs

1 tablespoons milk

1 lemon rinds, finely grated

Lemon Syrup:

1 lemons, juiced and strained

58g caster sugar


  1. Start by preheating your oven to 180°C, 350°F or gas mark 4.
  2. Then sift the flour and baking powder into a large mixing bowl, add the remaining cake ingredients and beat together until smooth.
  3. Grease and line the base of a loaf tin and spoon in the mixture.
  4. Bake for an 35 minutes or until cooked.
  5. Turn the cake out.
  6. Warm the lemon juice and sugar together.
  7. And now for the main event, drizzle the lemony syrup all over the cake and watch it soak in.
