Lemon Drizzle Cake

I have finally tried a British lemon drizzle cake, with my nifty new kitchen scale which my parents got me for Christmas. I got the recipe from GoodtoKnow, who claim it’s a Mary Berry recipe one of their most popular . It is a small cake, and I used a small square pan I rather like.


However, there isn’t actually much lemon in this cake: the zest of half a lemon. While it’s a decent cake, it’s not a stellar cake, and we would not have tasted lemon if it weren’t for the lemon glaze on it. If I make this again, I will put in lemon juice or essence as well. Quite frankly, I have made better lemon cakes than this, and probably won’t be adding this one to my recipe box.
