Lemon Drizzle Cake || My favourite Recipes | Foodie Friday

I originally searched for this recipe after getting Game of Thrones withdrawals in between season. For those of you that don't know, a main character in the book/TV series is Sansa Stark, and she has a soft spot for lemon cakes. So here is my version of it. I have made this recipe many times for my friends and have received great praise.



Serves: 12 

  • 110g (4 oz) margarine (dairy-free)*
  • 170g (6 oz) caster sugar
  • 2 eggs 
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk*
  • 170g (6 oz) flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 
  • zest  from 1 lemon
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons icing sugar 


Prep:15min  ›  Cook:50min  ›  Ready in:1hr5min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Grease and line a 23x13x7cm cake tin.
  2. Beat the first 6 ingredients and the lemon zest together until smooth and creamy. Pour cake mixture into prepared tin and bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes.
  3. Heat the lemon juice and stir in the icing sugar. While still hot in the tin, poke holes in the top of the cake with a knife or skewer and pour the lemon mixture evenly over cake. (Alternatively, if lemon sauce is poured over cool cake, it gives a glaze to the top.) 
  4. Dust with a little icing sugar and Enjoy.
 *these ingredients can easily be substituted for butter and milk, I just prefer to bake dairy-free.
