  • 275 g Self Raising Flour
  • 200 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • Zest of 1 Lime
  • 100 ml of vegitable oil

Gin Drizzle

  • 2 tbsp of Gin
  • 1 tbsp of Lime Juice
  • 4 tbsp of Icing Sugar


  1. Preheat an oven to 200C/180C fan or gas mark 6 and grease and line a baking tin.

  2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and lime zest together.

  3. Add tonic water, juice and oil to the mix and stir until smooth.

  4. Add to the tin and bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer/knife comes out clean. Then allow to cool for 10 minutes.

  5. Combine gin, lime juice and icing sugar together to get the drizzle. Add more icing sugar if you like a thicker icing instead. I make it like a thin syrup.

  6. Drizzle and allow to soak through. You can make a thicker drizzle to give the drizzled look aswell.
