Lemon Drizzle Cake Recipe - Quorn WI

 lemon drizzle cake Measures - 5oz self raising flour; 1 teaspoon baking powder; 4oz soft margarine; 4oz caster sugar; 1 tablespoon lemon curd ( home made is scrumptious); grated rind 1/2 lemon; 2 eggs; 1 tablespoon of water.
For the syrup- juice of 1/2 lemon and 2oz granulated sugar.

Set the oven to 325/150 or Mark 3. Grease and line a 2lb loaf tin. Put all the ingredients for the cake together and mix vigorously with a wooden spoon for about 3 minutes. Put into the tin and bake for about 45 mins ( until a skewer comes out clean - fan assisted ovens may take slightly less time).

While you're waiting, mix the lemon juice and sugar together. When the cake is cooked and still hot, pierce the top with a skewer and pour the syrupy mix over it - leave it in the tin to cool.
