I’ve read that around 40% of Brits name lemon drizzle cake as one of their most-loved treats. A quick lemon drizzle cake often comes to mind as the first choice for Saturday baking, as I almost always have lemons and limes in the fridge. I regularly buy citrus fruit for juice, cooking and cocktail making.
From a large pool of online recipes for lemon drizzle cake, I adapted a recipe Polly Welby’s famous lemon drizzle cake, and eventually changed ingredient quantities. I used a loaf tin and baked it for 45 minutes in a 170°C oven, and the cake turned out a lovely golden colour and beautifully baked – airy, very moist and flavourful, and not too lemony.
I would love to bake this again, experimenting with changing the order in which the ingredients are mixed. Then, I will share my method of making lemon drizzle cake – soon, hopefully!
