    Lemon Drizzle Cake

    Part one. Big C has lemons for 69 baht per Kilo as opposed to the usual 165 baht a kilo so I have been stocking up. Having run out of things to do with them, and about 50 sliced up and frozen for for popping into my sun downers, I decided to use a couple of them with a Lemon Drizzle Cake.

    Ingredients.

    250g caster sugar (Big C call is Quick Disolving Sugar)
    200g butter
    2/3 medium eggs (3 eggs work better than 2 for a lighter and more risen sponge)
    zest and juice of 2 lemons
    250g self-raising Flour (Cake Flour in Big C)
    100ml milk
    100g caster sugar
    (for topping, use juice from 2 zested lemons, and add 100g of sugar)

    Pot the butter, eggs, sugar and lemon zest in a bowl and beat it like a bastard until it goes white / paler. It might separate due to the acidity of the zest, but don't worry as the flour will bring it together again. Then gently but thoroughly beat in the flour and milk. Pop it into a loaf tin greased and lined, or if like me, I declined the loaf option and went for making individual cup cakes, grease and flour the tin.

    This is them in the oven cooking now with 30 minutes to go.



    The idea is to cook it / them until the top is golden brown and you get a slight tap when hit with a teaspoon. Real and present danger that they will over flow the cups and be a right old mess, but we will not be defeated by that.

    It's a shame that you city-slickers depend on your beloved supermarkets to provide you with basic essentials...just saying like.

    Point me in the direction of a market that sells lemons and I'll happily avoid the supermarket.

    Why make a comment like this RS? If you have a better option, then why don't you post that instead?

    Part 2.

    So when they are done, if they are just for you, use a fork, or for guests, a toothpick, and prick the top of each cake multiple times. Mix the 100g sugar with the juice of the two lemons and liberally dribble this onto the cakes. The result is;



    Then eat.



    The lemon and sugar keeps the acidity high so they are good to keep for about a week. The juice keeps them very moist. A winner.

    An absolute piss of piss to make - 10 mins to prep and that is all. When I have a proper kitchen again soon, there will be a lot of this stuff coming including my patented boiled fruit cake which is a master class in light moist fruit cake

    Luckily the I have an agreement with the other half. I cook - she washes up.

    I made sure that all my kids, sons and daughters, could cook at least one main course, one dessert and one cake.

    No excuse of not being able to feed themselves.

    ...but these cakes look nourishing ,whilst all that the Gay Shame bum banditry mob ever gave the world was AIDS , so the analogy doesn't really hold ,
    although nothing looks gayer than a man stood over a barbecue breathing toxic fumes in and turning over a few bits of meat with a smug look on his face , like he is the master of some secret art .

    Pseudolus's LD cakes look great
    though I would recommend throwing caution to the winds and burning the bastards a little more.

    also what oven temp ?

    The one above the one on the bottom right looks ok.

    Looking at that baking tray i fancy a game of connect four and hide the sausage for some strange reason ?

    That's not a lemon drizzle cake. It's a iced lemon curd cake. Looks nice although I can not understand why it is orange coloured.

    Well, I actually jumped into my car, with my "up the bum, no harm done" t-shirt on. No shame in men being able to cook. The best chefs in the world are men. Most chefs in the world are men. Besides, I would have thought a swordsman like you would forever be trying to slam the lamb up the ring piece of your latest squeeze to squeals of mai ow, mai ow, mai chop, jep mak.

    Well done soupdeloops thanks for the recipe ,, always good to see someone having a bake off on here

    As a fellow baker can I give you a little tip ? you do not " beat " flour in mate , it should only ever be folded in gently , the reason I have mentioned it is the cake you have cut open looks a tad heavy inside ? if it is then this is because the flour was beaten in ok ?

    Not critising mate , just offering a tip khao jai mai ?
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    Fair comment, and to be honest I fold in the flour - don't know why I wrote beat lol. Actually the reason is that I used 3 large eggs and not 3 medium eggs hence it being a little heavy. Bloody nice though, and just the job with a cup of coffee
