Homemade Lemon Drizzle Cakes – Weekend Bake

I dont know about you but I love the smell and taste of lemons.   Nothing nicer on a Sunday afternoon than a cuppa and a lemon drizzle cupcake.

Here is my version

Heat oven to Gas Mark 4/5

Line Two x 12 Muffin Tins with cake cases.


8oz  Caster Sugar
8oz Butter
8oz Self Raising Flour
4 eggs (beaten lightly)
Grated rind of a lemon
Juice of a lemon for the cake
Juice of a lemon for the icing.
Icing Sugar

If you make in a mixer put everything in together and allow to mix for about 5 minutes.

If you make in a bowl, add the sugar, butter, lemon juice and rind.
Beat until creamy.  Add eggs one at a time with a little four to prevent curdling.   Finally add in remainder of the flour and stir well.

Divide between the two tins and bake for about 15 – 20 minutes.

Whilst the cupcakes are cooking place some icing sugar into a bowl and add the juice of a lemon.  Mix well so that it is runny.  Add a little water if not enough lemon juice.

When the cakes come out immediately drizzle the icing over the top of the cakes and leave to cool.
