I realised that I haven't blogged one of my
signature cakes
so let's sort that out right now!
lemon drizzle cake

you will need ....

100g softened butter
175g caster sugar
175g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
6 tablespoons of milk
the finely grated zest of a large lemon

for the drizzle ~
75g caster sugar
the juice of the lemon you zested
which should be about 3 tablespoons

preheat your oven to 180c/ gas 4
line and grease a 18x28cm baking tin {or equivalent}
tip all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl
and beat for 2~3 minutes until mixture drops
easily from a spoon
pour into your prepared tin and smooth the top
bake for 30~40 minutes until golden and 
springy to touch
while it's baking mix the sugar and lemon juice 
for your drizzle
when the cake is baked & still hothothot
take a skewer and pierce the cake all over
spoon over the drizzle and leave to cool
it's super lemony treat!
