Mellow Yellow Meyer Lemon Drizzle Cake

Thank you to everyone who posted suggestions on my when life gives you lemons…” post asking what to do with the fruit from my Meyer Lemon tree. The one that really took my fancy was the idea of making a Lemon Drizzle Cake, and I did just that on Sunday.

Zesting:

Cooling on a wire rack after being drenched in a glossy lemony syrup:

It was a really delicious and light and fluffy – although more a testament I think to this excellent recipe than my baking. I’d like to think Mary Berry would be proud.

I have a couple of littler lemons ripening still on the tree so I’ll save those for that G&T…

  3. That looks so good. I made one a few weeks ago but it just had drizzle made from sugar and lemon juice, no icing. Must try this…

  4. I think Lemon Drizzle cakes might be my favourite cakes in the world, please make a note of this hee hee, and yours looks scrummy!
