Leave a comment

Hello food…..

So, As I’ve said in the previous post I decided to make a lemon drizzle cake. However, I wanted it to be slightly different so I made it just a general citrus one rather than focusing on just lemon.

Here it is, a cakey creation, that worked out quite nicely and hopefully will for you too!

Zesty, Citrusy, Drizzley Cakey Cake


225g Unsalted Butter
225g Caster Sugar
4 Eggs
225g Self Raising Flour
1/2 Lemon (Juice and zest)
1/2 Lime (Juice and zest)

Frosting – 180g Caster Sugar
                1/2 lime juice
                1/2 lemon juice
                20g Icing sugar


  1. Place Butter and Caster sugar in bowl and beat until light and fluffy.
  2. Add eggs gradually and make sure it doesn’t curdle, because then it is nooooooot nice!
  3. Add flour gradually and fold in gently to make sure it stays lovely and light!
  4. Add lemon and lime, again folding nice and gently!
  5. Grease and line a 20cm x 20cm baking tin with greaseproof paper and spoon mixture into tin. Smoooooooooooooooth over and put in oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes.
  6. Check by putting a skewer into the middle and making sure it comes out beautifully clean. 
  7. Turn out onto cooling rack.
  8. Mix together caster sugar, lime juice and lemon juice. Pour over cooled cake.
  9. When frosting has set dust the top with icing sugar. Cut into squares and SERVE! 
  10. Lovely CAK!
