The lemon drizzle cake has turned out fabulously!
It is in one piece (apart from a teeny piece which fell of and was used as the taste test!) and looks ok! It isn’t, by any means, a professional-looking cake but it isn’t bad considering the last cake I made fell to bits.
The cake rose more in the middle than the one in the picture on the BBC Good Food website. I’m not sure why that happened. I had to bake the cake for a little longer than the recipe suggested but that doesn’t seem to have made a difference.
I used the juice of two lemons, as opposed to one and a half, for the topping as I don’t have a proper juicer gadget. the problem with the way the cake rose in the middle is that the drizzle tried to escape when I poured it over. It seems to have a pretty good covering still.
This baking malarky is fun!
