Drizzle Ingredients

  • 175g Unsalted butter
  • 175g Golden caster sugar
  • 180g Self raising gluten free flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon

Method

  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven to 180.c and line your loaf tin with baking parchment (I used loaf tin cases as I stumbled across a pack and it saves a lot of hassle crimping and creasing !)
  • STEP 2
    Cream together the butter and sugar using an electric whisk and add the eggs whisking them in well.
  • STEP 3
    Gently fold in the flour and lemon zest, mixing well until fully combined.
  • STEP 4
    Spoon the cake batter into your prepared loaf tin and bake for approximately 45 minutes until golden on top and fully cooked through – until a knife or skewer comes out clean.
  • STEP 5
    Leave to cool in the cake tin on a cooling rack whilst you make the drizzle mixture.
  • STEP 6
    For the drizzle, put the ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Pierce quite a few holes in the cake mixture using a skewer or tooth pick, and pour the mixture over the cake whilst it’s still warm.
  • STEP 7
    Leave the cake to cool completely before removing from the tin and devouring with friends and family and and a nice cup o’ tea! Enjoy!
