My version of Lemon Drizzle Cake combines a sponge cake with lemon curd (jam), a lemon and sugar drizzle and butter icing. If you are new to baking start by making mini or cupcakes, they are a lot easier to get the baking time right. Have a read of my cake cake baking tips. In Germany they don’t sell self raising flour, however they do in the Netherlands. If you can’t find it I explain how to make it on the cake baking tips page.

Science says that for a perfect cake you need equal quantities of sugar and fat and this recipe has it at its core. You weigh the eggs and then use that weight as a guide for the other ingredients. Whatever you do use butter, not margarine it really delivers the best taste. I was delighted to find out that butter isn’t as bad as we all thought it was. To celebrate make these cakes. Measure the ingredients carefully the Women’s Institute use a Victoria Sandwich as one of the cakes to test the skill of the baker. This recipe is based on a traditional sandwich cake.

Lemon curd jam is easy to make in the microwave, or on the stove top.
