Ingredients
  1. 225g Margarine
  2. 225g Caster sugar
  3. 4 Eggs
  4. 2 juice of lemons
  5. 25g Self raising flour
  6. For the Drizzle
  7. 2 Juice of lemons
  8. 85g Caster sugar
Instructions
  1. A nice and easy 2 step method!
  2. Heat oven to 160C.
  3. Beat together 225g margarine and 225g caster sugar until pale and creamy, then add 4 eggs, one at a time, slowly mixing through. Sift in 225g flour, then add the juice and mix until well combined. Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper, then spoon in the mixture and level the top with a spoon. (Nicoletas top tip!)
  4. Bake for 45-50 mins. While the cake is cooling in its tin, mix together the juice of 2 lemons and 85g caster sugar to make the drizzle. Prick the warm cake all over with a skewer or fork- make sure you go right through to the bottom of the cake, then pour over the drizzle – the juice will sink in and the sugar will form a lovely, crisp topping.

  1. I made this last night for a coffee morning! It went really quickley, and people really liked it! I did made a small change, instead of putting lemon juice in the cake mix, I put lemon curd and lemon extract, as I didn’t have enough lemons! Will be making this again! Xx

  2. We’re so glad you loved it. We may have to give it a try with lemon curd. Keep an eye out for future tried and tested BEAN caffe favourites!
