Lemon Drizzle Cake

A lovely Lemon Cake which my Nan use to make - Absolutely delicious and everyones favourite


1. Preheat oven to 180 °C/gas mark 4.

2. Tip all cake ingredients into large mixing bowl and beat for 2-3 minutes, mixture will drop easily off spoon.

3. Spoon mixture into tin and smooth with back of spoon. I use an oblong tin which measures 9" x 8", lined with baking parchment. You could also use a round tin.

4. Bake for 30-40 minutes until golden & firm to the touch.

5. Beat together icing ingredients and pour over the cake while it is still HOT.

6. Cool in tin & slice.
