DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 180oC then grease and line a 2ib loaf tin.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together, add the lemon zest and eggs then beat again, if it splits add a tbs of flour and keep mixing. Add in flour, mixing gently then finally add the milk. Pour in prepared tin and bake for around 45 minutes.
  • Meanwhile mix the sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl and put to one side, the sugar will dissolve into a lovely tart syrup. Remember to stir again before putting on the cake.
  • Test the cake ( when a skewer comes out of the middle clean) prick it all over ans slowly spoon the sugar onto the cake. I find it easier to start in the middle then work my way round to the sides of the cake to ensure even distribution of the syrup.
  • Leave to cool completely in the tin before removing.
