Gluten Free Lemon Drizzle Cake



I am sorry about the photo – but I took this to German class this morning and this is all that was left!  I was in too much of a rush to take photos before I went – why I decided to make it this morning I don’t know…. Anyway – it went down really well and I was asked for the recipe by some of the girls – I think they were surprised it was gluten free!!  I love it when that happens as so many of the pre packaged gluten free things really are not nice….


To make this you will need :

220g butter

220g sugar

4 eggs

210g gluten free flour

10g gluten free baking powder

zest of one large lemon

For the drizzle

Juice of 2 lemons

100g sugar


Beat the butter and sugar until soft and fluffy, then add the eggs one at a time (with a spoonful of flour to stop it splitting), then add the flour and lemon zest.  Mix then add to a loaf tin and bake for 45mins at  180c (or until a knife comes out clean).   When the cake is still in the tin cooling – heat the lemon juice and sugar in a pan until the sugar is dissolved.   Pour this slowly over the top of the cake where it will sink in.   Allow to cool if you can – serve and enjoy!!
