Proper Lemon Drizzle Loaf
- 3 large free range eggs, lightly beaten
- 170g self raising flour (1 1/4 cups)
- 170g caster sugar (3/4 cup + 2 tsp)
- 170g butter, at room temperature (3/4 cup)
- the finely grated zest of 2 lemons
- the juice of 2 lemons
- 130g icing sugar (1 cup) (You can also use 190g/1 cup granulated sugar for a grittier finish and crunch, which I prefer)
- Preheat your oven to 180*C/350*F/ gas mark 4. Butter your loaf tin and line with some baking paper. Set aside.
- Rub the lemon zest into the sugar until quite fragrant. Beat in the butter until fluffy. Beat in the eggs, a third at a time, until smooth. If it starts to curdle add a bit of the flour and continue. Fold in the flour until thoroughly combined. Pour into the prepared pan and bake in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until golden brown and risen and the top springs back when lightly touched.
- Prick the top all over with a toothpick.
- Whisk together the sugar and juice of the lemons until smooth. Spoon over the warm cake allowing it to be absorbed. Let cool in the tin. Once cold lift out and cut into slices to serve. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.
