A summery lemon drizzle cake

If ever a cake could be described as refreshing, it’s lemon drizzle cake. Deceptively ordinary-looking on the outside (although with a tell-tale glaze of sugar), it’s wonderfully moist and citrussy inside – and remarkably easy to make as well.

A lovely lemon drizzle cake recipe - and really easy to make.

Summery and delicious!


For the cake

Zest of 2 lemons

200g butter or margarine

200g sugar

3 eggs, beaten

200g self-raising flour

For the syrup

Juice of 4 lemons

75g sugar


Moist and lemony!

Equally nice on the inside!

Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease and line a cake tin.

Mix all the cake ingredients together well and spoon into the cake tin.

Bake for 35-40 minutes. While it bakes, add the syrup sugar to the lemon juice and stir well.

When the cake is done, remove from the oven. Prick all over with a skewer and drizzle the syrup over it.

Allow the cake to cool, then lift out of the tin and serve.
