Lemon drizzle cake

It's difficult not to demolish this classic by Tana Ramsay in just one sitting, so why not make two at once?

It’s difficult not to demolish this classic by Tana Ramsay in just one sitting, so why not make two at once?

Ingredients:

  • 225g unsalted butter softened
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • finely grated zest 1 lemon

For the drizzle topping

  • juice 1½ lemons
  • 85g caster sugar

Method:

  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.
  2. Beat together 225g softened unsalted butter and 225g caster sugar until pale and creamy, then add 4 eggs, one at a time, slowly mixing through.
  3. Sift in 225g self-raising flour, then add the finely grated zest of 1 lemon and mix until well combined.
  4. Line a loaf tin (8 x 21cm) with greaseproof paper, then spoon in the mixture and level the top with a spoon.
  5. Bake for 45-50 mins until a thin skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  6. While the cake is cooling in its tin, mix together the juice of 1 ½ lemon and 85g caster sugar to make the drizzle.
  7. Prick the warm cake all over with a skewer or fork, then pour over the drizzle – the juice will sink in and the sugar will form a lovely, crisp topping.
  8. Leave in the tin until completely cool, then remove and serve. Will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days, or freeze for up to 1 month.
