Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezie All-In-One Lemon Drizzle Cake

I don’t know why I haven’t shared this recipe yet, as it is one that I make regularly and is a favourite for cake stalls and also WI cake contests! However, I am rectifying that today and at last I am sharing a family favourite, a recipe that I can make blind-folded – a tangy lemon loaf or cake, Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezie All-In-One Lemon Drizzle Cake! I have no problem with making cakes in the usual way, as in creaming the butter and sugar together and then adding the beaten eggs and flour bit by bit, but sometime when time is at a premium and you have lots of chores to do, there is nothing wrong (in my book) in bunging it all in a big mixing bowl and beating all the ingredients together, and it works! This lemon drizzle cake recipe always works and is light and airy with a fabulous tangy, crunchy topping that goes deliciously sticky after a few hours.

You can bake it in a loaf tin, as shown in the above collage, a cake tin, or even in a silicon mould, as I did last time I baked this for my dad’s birthday. I had been sent a FABULOUS cake mould from the lovely people at Just Mustard Com, who sell some amazingly innovative baking products, and when the cake was cut, it creates a HEART shaped slice of cake! The cake mould is called The Heart Cake Mould and makes 6 heart-shaped slices of cake…….such a GREAT idea!

I had plans to make a chocolate cake in the cake mould, but, my dad loves my lemon drizzle cake and so that’s what I made……

The cake cooked like a dream in the cake mould and when it was cut, I was able to serve my dad a “heart shaped slice of cake”……

The cake was easy to turn out and tasted just as delicious as it always does……..and with only three of us at home that day, it meant we all have TWO slices each! I love this cake mould and have used it several times since making this Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezie All-In-One Lemon Drizzle Cake – it works particularly well with chocolate cake……

A delicious and simple lemon drizzle cake that takes no time at all to make. Perfect for all occasions, this cake always disappears extremely quickly! Great for Cake Stalls and Village Fêtes, as well as for picnics and lunch boxes, as well as afternoon tea.

Ingredients

  • 5ozs (150g) SR Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4ozs (125g) butter
  • 4ozs (125g) golden caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoon home-made or high quality lemon curd
  • 1 lemon, grated zest and juice
  • 2 free-range eggs, beaten

Drizzle syrup

  • juice of 1 large lemon
  • 4ozs (125g) caster sugar

Note

A delicious and simple lemon drizzle cake that takes no time at all to make. Perfect for all occasions, this cake always disappears extremely quickly! Great for Cake Stalls and Village Fêtes, as well as for picnics and lunch boxes, as well as afternoon tea.

Directions

Step 1 Pre-heat oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease and line a 2lb (900g) loaf tin or a round cake tin.
Step 2 Put all of the cake ingredients into a large mixing bowl and beat thoroughly with a wooden spoon before finishing off with a hand held mixer for 3 to 4 minutes, or until mixture is light and fluffy.
Step 3 Pour the cake mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 45 to 50 minutes,
or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Step 4 Meanwhile, whilst the cake is baking, make the drizzle syrup by mixing the sugar and lemon juice together.
Step 5 On removing the cake from the oven, leave it in the tin and prick all over the top the cake with a skewer or fork before pouring over the drizzle syrup whilst the cake is still hot.
Step 6 Leave in the tin to cool and then turn out onto a plate; the top should be crunchy with the sugar as well as slightly sticky.
Step 7 The quantities can be doubled for a larger family cake or 2 loaves, and the cake can be split and sandwiched with lemon curd.

    Mmm! This looks delicious as always Karen! Can’t wait to try it for my daughter’s party! Are you able to tell me if this recipe freezes well?

  2. says

    so gorgeous… it’s been so lovely seeing all the wonderful heart-shaped cakes and all the different things we’ve done… your lemon cake looks so moist and delicious and sometimes it’s these simple recipes that are the best… i’ve made a couple of cakes with the mould now and i’ve worked out that it’s quite a large cake mould all-in and a 4 egg cake rises to the top of the mould… I may make your recipe and double it and see how that turns out (just because i’m a pig you understand!)

  3. says

    That looks a fabulous lemon cake. I feel compelled to bake one this afternoon !!
    I agree that whoever invented lemon drizzle cake deserves a medal for services to mankind and especially to charity cake stalls and afternoon teas !!

    • says

      I forgot to mention that my favourite cake recipe is my all in one chocolate cake.
      It would look great in this beautiful heart shaped mould !!

  4. says

    My favourite cake recipe is my mum’s chocolate cake. She doesn’t bake much but this is a winner and I asked for it for every birthday! Vohn x

  5. Chris Karling says

    Lemon drizzle cake is my all time favourite … I’m sure that the lemon in it counts as one of my five a day! To bake it in the flowery/heart mould would absolutely make it heaven on earth.

  6. Mark Whittaker says

    Lemon Drizzle is the first thing I ever baked , though it certainly did not look like yours . It was in a home ec. lesson at school led by our science teacher ( got to love the eighties) . I thought I had my favourite, chocolate sponge cake, down but in April used your drinking chocolate cake recipe for my birthday cake (lets face it – no one else would make it) and it was so great , much stronger flavour than I expected – as we are always told to steer clear of drinking choc and go for cocoa.

  7. Janet Rawstron says

    Coconut cake. I like it best when it collapses and the middle is compacted and soggy. There is no accounting for taste I guess.

  8. Carol Wilkinson says

    My 3year old daughter and I love baking banana cake. The cake mould would be a source of great delight

  9. elaine stokes says

    I always use my families lemon drizzle cake………………………………. its yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy

  10. Amanda Williams says

    christmas/fruit cake, but you have reminded me somewhere i have a recipe for an all in one pudding that you mix an cook as one. bake it and it comes out with custard underneath. Going looking for it now.

  11. Nicole Sage says

    Love the heart shape mould its so cute! Would be great for special occasions such as valentines! xx

  12. Joanna Tolhurst says

    I have a recipe for a carrot whiskey cake – just delicious and with carrots and raisins easily one of your 5 a day.

  13. lorraine polley says

    carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, i got the recipe from a womans magazine years ago, tastes fabulous

  14. molly kay says

    My favourite recipe is Chocolate Red Velvet Cake which would look fantastic in the I <3 cake mould. However I need to try out your Lemon Squeezie All-In-One Lemon Drizzle Cake, it's making my mouth water just reading about it :)

  15. Katy MacLachlan says

    date and walnut is my fave. love the mould – would be perfect for cakes i am making for friend’s wedding next month. she is not having a traditional wedding cake, having friends bake cakes instead. may have to invest in one if i am not lucky! x

  16. Laura Vitty says

    Anything with chocolate is good with me :D chocolate sponge with real butter icing is a fail safe classic.

  17. Janine Guthrie says

    My mum’s Victoria Sponge and little cakes receipe – fantastic every time and taste just like she used to make :D

  18. Tracyann Higgs says

    Lemon and Poppy Seed, although I will be trying your easy lemon drizzle recipe. Thanks for sharing it x

  19. Caroline Whiteman says

    Store cupboard chocolate marmalade cake is a firm favorite. .. but then again I’m easily swayed by a good coffee and walnut cake, and as for chocolate brownies… looks like I can’t pin myself down to one recipe after all.

  20. Ali Thorpe says

    I always return to Victoria sponges as they are so versatile and reliable. I’m also a big fan of Lemon Drizzle.

  21. simone mcdonald says

    clasic victoria sponge with a twist using colouring to make marbling in the layers my daughter loves seeing how it turns out everytimes a different pattern

  22. Maria Turner says

    Favourite cake recipe… hmmm

    I do love a good Victoria Sandwich, but also love coffee cakes.
    I love the vegan choc cake I make just because my daughter loves it and it means she can share a cake with us.

    I have to say the lemon drizzle cake looks so yummy though :)

  23. Sara Goodman says

    Any one bowl cupcake recipe pleases me. Easy recipes, to my mind, are always the best :) Super giveaway – thank you!

  24. Sheila Reeves says

    It is Lemon Drizzle cake! A huge favourite in this household – & I love the heart mould! Great to see it in use as the mould on it’s own doesn’t do it justice, such a great idea!

  25. samantha schofield says

    mine has to be blueberries and white chocolate chip cake and the mould is great would love to serve them in heart shapes for Macmillan coffee morning

  26. Angie Colbourne says

    Carrot cake but now having seen that receipe and pictures for lemon cake…..I think I’m being converted!

  27. Pam Lawrence says

    Carrot and orange cake with orange cream cheese fronting – my recipe is totally decadent and about as far from the image of earnest vegetarian fo as you could imagine!!

  28. alice lightning says

    coffee cake always take me back to my childhood with our christmas parties happy times and still a favourite with the family now

  29. Katie Morgan says

    It is difficult to beat a lemon drizzle cake, but running a close second is ginger cake – lovely and warming for the autumn and keeps for a few days, although it is normally scoffed in one day!

  30. Becci Cleary says

    Classic Birthday Sponge Cake – I am always hovering towards the end at the kids partys waiting for the cake in the party bags haha!!

  31. MICHELLE TEARALL says

    Has to be coffee cake. Yummy
    Although just made a batch of banana muffins, and I must say they too are rather yummy!!!!

  32. Irene Wright says

    this is one of my favourite cakes – lemon drizzle cake and one I usually pick if we’re out for a snack

  33. Theresa Carter says

    I made the lemon drizzle cake in a loaf tin this afternoon as my daughter is staying overnight & loves home made cake. Think she will be impressed as it’s my best one yet. Thank you for the recipe Karen
