Scrumdelicious Lemon Drizzle Cake!!

So I’ve had about two requests for my Lemon Drizzle Cake recipe, especially from people who have tasted mine and I’ve decided I’ll share it with all of you.

So here it is:

Lemon Drizzle Cake

Lemon Drizzled cake

1 1/2  cup All-Purpose Flour
– 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
– 1 Egg
– 1/3 cup Sugar
– 1/3 cup Margarine
– 1 Lemon (Grate for rind and squeeze for juice)

For Lemon Glaze/Drizzle:
– Juice of 3 Lemons
– 1/4 cup Sugar


1.) Preheat oven to 350 ºF. Grease and flour 6″ Round cake pan and set aside.
2.) Sift flour and baking powder into a separate bowl. In another bowl; cream sugar and margarine, then add the egg and mix until thoroughly mixed.
3.) Fold in the dry ingredients slowly, until well mixed. Fold lemon rind in and then pour batter into cake pan and put into oven.
4.) Bake for about 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
5.) Meanwhile, combine the lemon juice of the 3 lemons and the 1/4 cup of sugar in a small bowl.
6.) When cake is baked, remove from oven and let cool for at least 3-5 minutes in cake pan. Remove from pan and let cool on a cooling rack. When you place cake on cooling rack, pour lemon glaze over the still hot cake then let it cool.

Serve and enjoy!!

  1. I go googoo eyes on this cake. If it were possible, I'd get one every day, but that's really bad for my health, so I settle for bribing and cajoling my sister into baking it when I can. Yummy.!!!
