Citrus And Flour

Updated: Jun 28

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m hitting you with another baking post! This time it’s a cake! Ok, so I know I said, in my last baking post that I’d be taking this baking thing, step-by-step, but I couldn’t find any good recipes that didn’t involve ingredients I had to buy. I wanted to make something easy, with the ingredients I already had. So, I scoured the internet, and compared recipes, and I came up with “this little slice” (shout-out if you get this reference!).

Anyway, today’s kitchen masterpiece is a lemon drizzle cake. It’s similar to the kinds you get at cafes and restaurants. I got this recipe from Yummly…my go-to apparently…and thought I’d try it out. You see, I didn’t just want to keep going with scones, or alfajores (which I need to bake again because they’re absolutely gorgeous for parties and as snacks), or cookies. I wanted something with a little zest in it, and I found this one. It’s equal parts sour and sweet, and I would definitely make it again! It’s a great dessert or snack for tea, and I would recommend it to all you amateur bakers out there!

It’s Party Time!

Ok, so this recipe is dead easy. It’s basically equal parts of flour, milk and eggs, with two lemons worth of zest and juice! Like I said, I got this recipe off Yummly, but the original came from a blog called The Londoner. When I read her description of why she’d baked this concoction, I realised I had the same sentiment!
