Lemon Drizzle Cake

  • RECIPE MAKES: 8-10 portions
  • PREP TIME: 10 minutes
  • COOK TIME: 60 minutes
Step 1

Preheat an oven to 180°C/ 160°C fan/ gas mark 4.

Step 2

Line a 3lb loaf tin with baking paper and set aside.

Step 3

Place the Bread Mix, egg replacer, baking powder and turmeric into a large mixing bowl, mix well.

Step 4

Add the oil, ProZero, lemon juice and zest, mix to create a smooth consistency.

Step 5

Pour the batter into the loaf tin. Bake for 60 minutes until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Step 6

5 minutes before the cake is ready, make the syrup by melting the sugar with the lemon juice over a medium heat, until the sugar is dissolved. Once the cake has baked, poke lots of holes in the top with a skewer and brush the surface with the syrup, whilst it’s still warm. Set aside and allow to cool completely in the tin.

Step 7

Make the frosting by mixing the lemon juice with the icing sugar until you have a thick but runny consistency. Once the cake has cooled remove from the tin and drizzle the lemon icing on top. Sprinkle over the lemon zest to decorate.
