The perfect accompaniment to a nice cup of tea, these lemon drizzle slices are a light and zesty treat. A nice alternative for those who don’t particularly love heavy baking! If you aren’t too keen on baking, this all in one recipe makes things very simple and should leave you with beautiful results!

Makes: 12 Squares

225g/1 cup caster sugar
250g/1½ cups self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
4 large free-range eggs
225g/8 oz unsalted butter, at room temperature
3 tbsp of milk
Zest of 3 lemons
200g/¾ cups icing sugar
Finely grated zest and juice of a lemon

1) Pre-heat the oven to 160°C/fan 140c. Grease and line a 20cm square baking tin with parchment paper.

2) Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and make a well with the back of a spoon. Add the eggs, butter, milk and zest and beat with a hand mixer until well combined for about two minutes.

3) Pour the mixture into the lined tin, place in the oven on the middle rack and cook for 35-40 minutes until golden brown on top and risen. Turn out onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely before icing.

4) Whisk together the icing sugar and lemon zest with enough of the juice to make a thick drizzle and spread over the top of the cooled lemon cake. Allow to set then slice into rectangular pieces.
