Lemon Drizzle Loaf Cake

Recipe Notes:-  You can use any of the Sugar and Crumbs Natural Flavoured Icing Sugars if you don't have Lemon Drizzle.  This recipe is delicious using Key Lime and Orange Zest as alternative. Change the fruit according to the flavour you have chosen.

This recipe is for a 2lb loaf tin.

1. Preheat the oven to 180º C, 350 F, Gas mark 4.

2. Beat together in a large mixing bowl the eggs, flour, Sugar and Crumbs Lemon Drizzle Flavoured  Icing Sugar, butter, baking powder until smooth and turn into the prepared tin.

3. Bake in the oven for about 35-45 minutes or until golden brown, shrinking away from the sides of the tin and springy to the touch.

4. While the cake is still warm, make the Sugar and Crumbs Lemon Drizzle topping. Mix together the sugar and lemon juice and pour over the warm cake. See more comments below.

5. Leave to cool a little and loosen the sides of the cake, then lift the cake out of the tin.

How to make the drizzle topping

6. Place the granulated sugar or caster sugar into a bowl. Add the Sugar and Crumbs Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar then a couple of tablespoons of water or the juice of the lemon (orange or lime depending on which one your making). Mix in until all incorporated.

7. Fork the cake all over while still warm in the loaf pan. Pour over the mixture and leave to set.  This way you get everything, if you pop it on to a rack it will all drizzle of the sides.

    Just made some, and it’s delicious. Perfect amounts too for the loaf tin, as some recipes put far too much in.
    Will be bookmarking this one, thanks

    What a lovely recipe so easy and very tasty! I recommend this to all, I made 7 mini loaves for gifts from one batch and the lemon drizzle icing sugar is a winner! I can’t purchase any more as I’m in NZ and too costly but am so blessed to try the icing sugars thanks to a great friend who lives there.
