This is a deliciously mouthwatering slice of heaven. If you are a fan of Lemon Drizzle anything, this is definitely the one to bake!
Pre heat the oven to 160 degrees C, and lightly grease a 20x30 cm tray. I used a foil tray which I usually wash and reuse. To grease I used coconut oil.
In a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients for the batter and whisk with an electric hand mixer. It should combine quite quickly, so keep going until the batter is smooth.
Pour the batter into the baking tray and with a spatula or spoon, smooth the thick batter into the corners of the tray. Make sure the batter is evenly distributed across the tray, then pop it into the middle of your oven for 35-40 mins until a skewer comes out clean.
Once baked, leave to cool for 5 mins before pricking the top of the cake with a fork. This will help the lemon absorb better.
In a small bowl combine the granulated sugar and lemon, then slowly spoon the mixture ove the cake. Go slowly so the cake has time to absorb the lemony goodness! Leave to completely cool and watch the syrup form a crystal crust ontop of your cake.
Cut into small pieces, I got 24 from mine, but you could do bigger slices if you wanted. Then sit back and enjoy a slice with a lovely cuppa!
You could easily swap the lemon in the recipe out for a grapfruit, to make a tangy refreshing slice. Or it may work well with a hint of lavender in it.
However you make it let me know how you got on with it!
