Bradley recently made us a lovely Lemon Drizzle cake, I must say it was amazing. Here is how he made it.
You will need:
For the cake
- 350g butter
- 350g caster sugar
- 350g self-raising flour
- Zest of two large lemons
- 4 medium eggs
- 50ml milk
For the butter cream
- Juice of 1 small lemon
- 100g butter
- Caster sugar
- Vanilla extract
For the drizzle
- Juice of 2 large lemons
- Icing sugar
To make the cake mix you need to:
- Pre-heat the oven to 180c.
- Add the butter and sugar to a mixing bowl.
- In a separate bowl sift the flour and the zest, mix together.
- Using another bowl add the eggs, milk and then whisk together.
- Line the cake tins with grease-proof paper.
- Whisk together the butter and sugar.
- Add all the cake mix together and whisk for 2 minutes.
- Separate the mix between the two tins and bake for 30/40 minutes until the sponge has risen and cooked through.
- Leave the cake to cool off.
- Once the cakes are cool make the butter cream filling.
To make the butter cream filling you need to:
- Beat the butter together with the caster sugar.
- Add the juice of the lemon.
- Add vanilla extract.
- Spread over the cake and add the top to the cake.
To make the drizzle you need to:
- Add the juice of the lemon and icing sugar, mix together.
- Drizzle the mix over the top of the cake.
- Place in the fridge to set.
Then you simply enjoy.
