Lemon Drizzle Cake

السلام عليكم....

Arini ada kesempatan i nak share resepi kek yg sedap & moist ni! Pada sesapa yg suka lemon @ orange mesti suke kek ni! Resepi ni asal dr Tana Ramsy , sgt mudah & moist, bla kek da masak, tgh panas2 tu tuang lemon drizzle topping.. pastu bla da sejuk makan kek tu, mmg lembut & terasa tangy lemon tu! Aqil & Aiman pon suke, ingat two kiddo ni xbrapa sgt sbb ada rs lemon masam2 manis, skali hadap je.. hehheee.. utk resepi dibawah boleh dpt saiz 8'x8' tin empat segi:) ....


225g unsalted butter , softened
225g caster sugar
4 eggs
finely grated zest 1 lemon
225g self-raising flour

Drizzle topping :

juice 1 1/2 lemon
85g caster sugar

Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Beat together 225g softened unsalted butter and 225g caster sugar until pale and creamy, then add 4 eggs, one at a time, slowly mixing through. Sift in 225g flour, then add the finely grated zest of 1 lemon and mix until well combined. Line a loaf tin (8 x 21cm) with greaseproof paper, then spoon in the mixture and level the top with a spoon.
Bake for 45-50 mins until a thin skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. While the cake is cooling in its tin, mix together the juice of 1 1/2 lemons and 85g caster sugar to make the drizzle. Prick the warm cake all over with a skewer or fork, then pour over the drizzle - the juice will sink in and the sugar will form a lovely, crisp topping. Leave in the tin until completely cool, then remove and serve. Will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days, or freeze for up to 1 month.
