Easy Lemon Drizzle Cake Recipe

Hey beaut's!

I've been baking again, this time around I wanted to make something super quick and easy with a slight summery twist seeing as the weather has been absolutely gorgeous this week, so I went for a yummy lemon drizzle cake! I don't know why but lemon drizzle is always something I like to have in the Spring/Summer months and I don't think I had baked one since last Summer so it was well overdue! This is probably my simplest, easiest recipe because it literally only has a couple of steps and not many ingredients at all, but it tastes so, so nice!
Cake Recipe -
175g self-raising flour
175g caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
100g Stork with butter
2 eggs
finely grated zest of 1 lemon
juice of half a lemon
2-3 tbsp milk

Drizzle/Glaze Recipe -
100g icing sugar
a couple of teaspoons of lemon juice or a couple of teaspoons of water. 

How To -
1. Pre-heat your oven to gas mark 4 /180 then line and grease a loaf tin.
2. Pop all of your cake ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix together with an electric whizzer until everything is smooth and well combined.
3. Then pop the cake batter into the loaf tin and bake for around 30-35 minutes.
4. Once your cake is cooked and cool you can make the yummy drizzle which is so simple, just mix your icing sugar with either lemon juice or water a teaspoon at a time until your icing is the consistency of thick cream and then drizzle it all over the cake anyway you like, if your drizzle/glaze does become too thin just add some more icing sugar. You could always do a crunchy sugar topping instead if you like by mixing some granulated sugar and juice of a lemon together, it's completely up to what you prefer.
And there you have it, a yummy lemon drizzle cake that hardly takes any time or effort at all. It was so tasty even if I do say so myself he he.
