Ingredients

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C.
  2. Put all the above ingredients on a bowl and mix until it is well mixed and smooth. Add enough milk to give a softer consistency (the recipe said 1 tablespoon but it tends to need a little more).
  3. Transfer the mixture to a lined 2lb loaf tin.
  4. Bake for about 50 minutes - depending on your oven - test in the usual way to make sure it is done.
  5. While it is cooking blend together to give a smooth gooey paste.
  6. Immediately the cake comes out of the oven, make lots of deep holes in it with a skewer.
  7. Sprinkle liberally with bottled lemon juice then spoon the lemon drizzle mixture evenly over the cake.
  8. Leave to cool - then enjoy!
