Lemon Drizzle Loaf Cake Recipe


For the Cake:

  • 190g Sugar
  • 190g Flour
  • 190g Butter
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 6g Baking Powder
  • Zest of 2 Lemons

For the Glaze: 

  • 200g Icing Sugar
  • Zest of 2 Lemons


  • Mix butter, sugar and lemon zest together in a machine, letting it beat until smooth.
  • Once the butter, sugar and lemon are smooth, slowly add the eggs whilst beating to incorporate fully.
  • Then add the dry ingredients, and fold them in so as not to knock any air out of the mix.
  • Spoon the mix into your buttered loaf tin, only halfway up the side of the tin as it will leave space for the cake to rise.
  • Put into the oven at 160 degrees, for around 20-25 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean.
  • While the sponge is in the oven, mix the lemon juice and icing sugar together to make the syrup.
  • Once the cake is cooked, allow to cool a little and then stab the cake with a skewer or knife to make multiple holes all over the cake, and pour over the syrup evenly. Once fully cooled remove from the tin and its ready to serve.
