The best lemon drizzle

A: tonight I made my favourite lemon drizzle, it’s my go to cake because it’s so easy to make and everyone loves it so I thought I’d share it with you guys!

Firstly, you need the following ingredients:

175g margarine
175g self raising flour
175g caster sugar
2 large eggs (free range if possible!)
4 tablespoons milk
2 lemons

Switch the oven on to 160 degrees Celsius, then mix all of the ingredients (apart from the lemons) together. I use a mixer and just put it all in and let it do it’s stuff. Once you’ve got a lovely, velvety consistency of cake mix, add the grated zest of the lemons.
Put the mix into a loaf tin which has been lightly greased and lined with baking parchment. Pop into the oven and cook for 30-35 mins, test it with a knife to check it’s cooked all the way through.

Whilst the cake is cooking, weigh out 100 grams of granulated sugar and mix with the juice of the 2 lemons. This makes the crystal glaze topping. Once the cake is cooked and taken out of the oven, pour this over the top and let it cool. This makes it extra moist and lemony!

Finally, make a cup of tea and enjoy a slice of lovely lemon drizzle!! #twolittleowls
