What do you do when a friend is coming round for afternoon tea? Why - bake a cake of course! I used Tana Ramsey's recipe for Lemon Drizzle cake, from the BBC Good Food website. It didn't take very long to prepare, and the added bonus was having hens at the bottom of the garden means the eggs were EXTRA fresh. Parchment paper cake tin liners mean there is no chance of the mixture stitcking to the tin, and these were bought from Lakeland (I really should have shares in that place - the wonderful lemon grater also came from there)...
...45 minutes after the mixture was popped into the oven, this was the result! I drizzled a mixture of castor sugar and lemon juice over the cake while it was still ward, and added another layer once the cake had cooled a bit, to add a zingy, crisp topping. Well it certainly tasted delicious, and Mr F took a HUGE slice to work with him for his supper.
