This is the perfect lemon drizzle loaf recipe ever. Fact.
Its moist, tangy and definitely leaves you wanting more. Its also one of the easiest recipes to make – have I persuaded you yet??
The key to this is buying the best, freshest lemons that you can to get a brilliantly tangy flavour in every bite. Other than that, the recipe starts with a simple creaming method, addition of eggs and then you literally fold everything else in before pouring it into the loaf tin. For the initial batter you can be in and out of the kitchen within 15 minutes!
The lemon syrup is poured over the cake whilst it is still warm, giving delicious pockets of flavour throughout the loaf. After that, the final step is to make the thick lemon icing to pour over the top. You want to keep this quite thick so it oozes down the sides of the loaf but doesn’t completely run off! You want to eat as much of the icing as possible after all!
This really is such a classic recipe and a definite crowd pleaser!
