A simple but impressive cake adapted from one of Mary Berry's awesome desserts, this Moist Lemon Drizzle Cake is one of Great Britain's favourite cake recipes. Moist, flavourful, super easy to whip up, and great for any party, the lemon drizzle cake is a winner every single time. It has a light texture, and that fantastic citrusy kick. Serve it with tea or coffee for the perfect afternoon tea treat.
Sift the flour and add it to a large bowl together with 100 g of sugar, eggs, milk, butter, baking powder, salt and lemon zest.
Use an electric mixer to mix everything together to a smooth, creamy consistency.
Flour and grease a round cake tin (mine is a 16x9 cm with loose base), then place the mixture into it.
Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees C (350 degrees F) for 35-40 minutes, keeping an eye on it.
To make the syrup, mix the lemon juice with 50 g of sugar.
Once the cake is out of the oven, remove it from the tin, pour over the lemon syrup, then leave it to cool down completely.
