Lemon Drizzle Slices
This recipe Lemon Drizzle Slices is one of my go-to baking recipes. I absolutely love the sweet yet tart combination of ingredients. It is a very versatile cake too. Sometimes I just add the drizzle topping, but if I am feeling fancy or I’m in the mood for more sweetness, I make a white icing which I pour over the cooled cake and leave to set before serving.
I start by making the actual cake. To do this, I beat butter and sugar together before adding eggs, flour, baking powder, lemon zest, lemon curd and milk. I pour this simple cake mixture into a cake pan and bake in the oven. While the cake is baking, I prepare the drizzle topping and icing and have them ready to go once the cake is cooked and cooled.
To make Lemon Drizzle Slices, you will need the following ingredients:
Steps to make Lemon Drizzle Slices
Heat the oven and prepare a pan

Add the remaining ingredients
Make the drizzle
Well, I don't have a mixer so I had to do it all by hand but it was worth it just a lot of work for sure.
That's the second recipe that I happen to notice that it's from this Jeff person, last one I made was the Italian chicken and it was really good so I don't think that I'll be disappointed by this cake.
I was looking to make something both sweet and sourish and here we are :-]
Lemon cake slices with some tea sounds like a great idea, well, on it!
Well that was another great lemon cake that I've found here. I already made the lemon sponge one and it was epic. Thank you to whoever is running this place and all the people that share their recipes.
It took 50 minutes to bake so that was slightly off but other than that it was okay.
My daughter just made it for me, it's my birthday today and she wanted to bake me a cake...she's 6 and that's the cutest thing ever!!!! The cake is delicious by the way <3
Having it right now with my coffee after a long day of work, the view is amazing and nothing could make this evening better, I'm a happy man.
My friend has her birthday in 17 days, I'm not so good with cooking but I bet that even I can make this, I will make one for a test just to make sure that I've got this and then just wait for the day before the big day to make another!!!
This is perfect for someone like me that hasn't had any experience with baking, thanks a lot.
I cut it in multiple slices and added lemon buttercream atop of each, so cute <3
Damn everything is exactly on point, like no kidding it took me 1 hour and 5 minutes haha, instructions are clear and simple, the taste is really good, I can't see anything wrong with it, a 5 star recipe, well done!!
I covered it in strawberry frosting, needless to say that it turned out perfect <3
Thanks for sharing this great recipe, luckily there are people that can make anything taste amazing.
I added a bit of something to it after I took it out of the oven and let it stay for a bit, here's a tip, cut in three horizontal slices and smear some cream cheese frosting on each, you'll love it!
Kinda lacking something in my opinion but wasnt owful.
Indeed just as the title states, the easiest cake I've ever made, thank you!
Even though it didn't have anything special added to it, it was actually much better than what I expected, 10/10 will make again.
Real smooth texture, I love it. Wrote it down and will definitely experiment with it, has potential to be even better!
I know that it's supposed to be simple and easy but I'd really like for it to have something more added to it..i'll have to play around with the recipe i guess
Amazing! Thanks for sharing recipe!
