Lyle’s Golden Syrup Lemon Drizzle Loaf Cake Recipe
When life gives you lemons, make cake
Lemon drizzle cake is a long-standing family favourite and the perfect sweet treat for pretty much any occasion, from parties and gatherings, to lazy Sundays in front of the tele. This simple little recipe yields a lemon drizzle loaf to die for. Lyle’s Golden Syrup classic lemon drizzle cake is mouth wateringly moist and light, with the perfect amount of zesty, tangy goodness.
First, grease and line 900g/2lb loaf tin. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160Cfan/gas 4.
Next, sift the flour and baking powder together into a large bowl before adding the soft margarine or butter, Tate & Lyle Golden Caster Sugar, Lyle’s Golden Syrup, eggs, milk and lemon zest, then beat together until you get a well-mixed, smooth consistency.
Spoon the mixture into the tin and level the surface. Then place it in the oven and cook for 40-45 minutes, or until well risen and firm to the touch. Remove the cake from the oven and place it on a wire rack to cool down.
Now, gently warm the Lyle’s Golden Syrup, lemon juice and lemon strips in a pan.
Make small holes in the top of the loaf with a skewer and pour in the drizzle, leaving the lemon rind to settle on top of the loaf.
