1 Year Anniversary

Hey Guys!

So today is my one year anniversary between me and my blog. And what better way to celebrate than with a cake? A lemon cake in fact!

So exams are proving very stressful, but as I have a slight break between them all, I decided to do some baking. Yesterday I made a banana cake, but that didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped. However, the lemon drizzle cake I made today is to die for and I thought I would share the recipe with you. Seeing as I love photography, I couldn’t resist but take pictures of my stages of baking!

Ingredients for the cake:

  • 225g Unsalted Butter
  • 225g Caster Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Lemon Zest
  • 225g Self Raising Flour

Ingredients for the topping: 

  • Juice of 1 and 1/2 Lemon
  • 85g Caster Sugar

All Ingredients Needed

Method 

  1. Heat Oven to 180°C
  2. Line a loaf tin with grease proof paper and you’re ready to get started
  3. Beat the sugar and the eggs until they are creamy
  4. Add each egg, beating after adding each
  5. Sift in the flour bit by bit and fold in to the mixture
  6. Add lemon zest
  7. Pour mixture into the loaf tin and put in the oven for 40-45 minutes

Topping 

  1. Mix the juice of the lemon with the caster sugar
  2. Once the cake is cooked and had a chance to cool a little, but is still warm, prick the top and drizzle the topping over
