Tea and Cake

This picture is a updated one of a chocolate cake I baked - the other image of a lemon drizzle has somehow disappeared!

A couple of days ago, I decided to invite a few friends over to help make some cakes for a tabletop sale event, and they all looked so great I decided to share with you my favourite - the Lemon Drizzle.

I used a lemon drizzle sponge recipe: 8oz butter, 8oz sugar, 10oz self-raising flour, 4 eggs, 4tbs of milk, and baked that in the oven for about 40 minutes. I then stabbed a fork into the top and mixed sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest together and poured that over the cake and left it to set.

I was pleased at how the cake turned out and when we sold the cake, everyone said it tasted nice, (and from personal experience later, I can clarify that it did), and I will definitely be baking this cake again.

What do you think, will you try this out?   


  1. This cake does look yummy
