Lemon drizzle cake

My little girl says “Happy to you” whenever she hears ‘cake’ or sees one!! Lol. She firmly believes that a cake means she has got to sing happy birthday to someone. She just loves cakes. So when I made the lemon drizzle cake, she was overjoyed. So was her dada. But my lil’ boy does not have a sweet tooth, so he just went along his way after the first bite. 😉

My mom is my first cooking guru, so obviously, getting her approval is always a big deal (and difficult too at times). But she loved this one!



  • Self raising flour – 225g
  • Butter – 225 g
  • Caster sugar – 225g
  • Eggs – 4
  • Lemon – 2
  • Caster sugar – 100g


  1. Grate zest of a lemon and keep aside.
  2. In a large bowl mix together butter, eggs and caster sugar(225g) with a beater.
  3. Sift in the flour and keep beating it to a thick consistency.
  4. Add the lemon zest and mix it once more.
  5. Pour the mixture into a cake tin and bake at 150 C for an hour.
  6. Check if the cake is cooked through.
  7. Let it cool. Meanwhile, mix together 100g caster sugar and juice of 2 lemon in a cup.
  8. Once the cake is cooled down, prick all over the top layer with a fork.
  9. With a spoon, drizzle the lemon and sugar mix on the cake. Let the cake absorb it.
  10. Ready to serve after the cake has completely cooled down and there is a glaze on top of it.

Daddy and daughter favorite. 🙂
