1 tsp baking powder
100g unsalted butter, softened
100g caster sugar
zest of 2 lemons
Juice of ½ lemon
60g granulated sugar
Preheat the oven to 180°C / 160°C Fan / Gas 4.
Grease a small 450g loaf tin and line with baking parchment.
Beat the butter and caster sugar together until smooth then add one egg at a time and continue to beat until the mixture is pale and creamy. Add the sieved flour and lemon zest and mix well. Spoon into the prepared loaf tin.
Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool in the tin.
Meanwhile mix lemon juice and granulated sugar to make the drizzle. Gently pierce the cake all over with a fork then drizzle the mixture all over. Leave to cool completely and remove from tin. Slice and serve.
