Tea Time Recipe:
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……
