Lemon Drizzle Loaf
240g unsalted butter
240g cater sugar
240g self raising flour
4 large eggs
Zest of 2 lemons
75ml lemon juice
75g caster sugar
Step 1 - Preheat the oven to 160'C (fan oven).
Step 2 - Grease and line a rectangular, loaf tin.
Step 3 - In a bowl, beat together the butter and the caster sugar until the mixture is pale and creamy.
Step 4 - Add in the flour, eggs and lemon zest. Beat into the mixture until well combined.
Step 5 - Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and place in the centre of the oven. Set a timer for 50 minutes.
Step 6 - While the loaf is baking, you can make the drizzle. To do this, combine the lemon juice and caster sugar into a bowl.
Step 7 - Remove the cake from the oven. While still in the tin, use a fork to prick holes in the top of the cake. Pour the drizzle mixture over the cake and leave in the tin to cool.
Step 8 - Remove the cake from the tin and enjoy! Baba Chef Jack recommends serving this with a generous amount of ice cream - yummy!
