Lemon Drizzle Loaf

My husband's grandmother along with his aunt and little cousins decided to make a visit to Bangalore. Amidst all the eating out, mall hopping, window shopping and shopping there's no place like home at the end of the day. The kitchen in the least week were full of too many good cooks right from my mother-in-law to my aunt to my grandmother to my father-in-law. So I took a backseat from my share of kitchen duties for  the morning and afternoon meals and ensured tea time is where I'd contribute. A cake for consumption along with masala chai.

Plain flour - 175gms
Baking powder - 1tbs
Caster Sugar-175gms
Butter - 175gms softened
Eggs - 3 beaten
Egg yolk - 1
Lemon/Lime - 1 finely grated
Lemon juice - 2tbs
Strips of lime/lemon zest.

Icing sugar- 85gms
Lemon Juice - 3tbsp

Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease and line a 1.2liter loaf tin. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the butter, caster sugar, egg yolks and yolk. Beat well until the mixture is smooth. Then stir in the lemon rind and juice. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and smooth the surface with a palette knife. Bake for about 40-50minutes until golden brown/ or skewer inserted comes clean. Remove from tin and set to cool on a rack.
For the syrup, place the icing sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan and heat gently without boiling, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Prick the top of the loaf several times with a skewer and spoon the syrup over. Scatter with strips of lemon zest and cut into slices.


  1. The loaf looks pretty & moist. I love lemony flavor and LDC is one of my FAV cake :)

  2. Looks this by any chance from the book 1 mix..??
