Easy Lemon Drizzle Cake

I've decided, regrettably, to give up chocolate again this year. I managed to struggle on and complete this challenge last year so I wanted to give it another go because I'm a complete chocolate addict. It's a serious problem I'm not kidding!

Anyway I thought this lemon drizzle cake would be perfect for anyone going through the same struggle! It's light, super easy and only took me 10 minutes to whip up.


- 75g unsalted butter
- 125g caster sugar
- 150g self raising flour
- 1tsp baking powder
- 2 medium eggs
- 2 tbsp lemon curd
- 3 tbsp full fat milk

For the drizzle

- zest and juice of 1 lemon
-2 tbsp granulated sugar
-1 tbsp lemon curd 
- 50g icing sugar


1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and grease and line a 1kg loaf tin.

2. Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy with a wooden spoon. Add the rest of the mixture ingredients and beat until thoroughly combined.

3. Pour mixture into loaf tin and bake for 45 minutes until golden brown or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.  

4. Meanwhile prepare the drizzle by combining the ingredients in a bowl with a whisk until smooth. When the cake is out of the oven pour the drizzle over the hot cake in it's tin. Leave to cake to cool completely, the serve!
