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

Ready to eat!
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…
