Lemon Squeezy

I woke up super early this morning, and due to the fact that I no longer have any knitting to get on with I thought I’d whip up something yum to have with my morning cuppa. When I don’t feel like sifting through my cook books and back issues of Olive and Delicious, I find the net is a really simple way of looking for inspiration. I finally settled on Tana Ramsey’s Lemon Drizzle Loaf. Lemon cake has to be a favorite of mine and it’s probably the only type of cake that my boyfriend will eat (other than chocolate of course!).

The recipe took no time to whip up (thanks to my christmas present of a hand mixer), although the baking time recommended was way off. Instead of the 45 minutes they suggested it took over an hour and a quarter and by the time it was done my loaf tin was almost overflowing. But all in all, it’s delicious.

    I first looked at your blog because I found ‘lemon squeezy’ to be a too funny name for this cake (looks so appetizing by the way, looks a little bit happier than the original), and I found that your crafting is cute as well ;] Cool.

      Thanks! I hate having to make up titles for each post, but this one was meant in an ‘Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy’ sense, referring to how simple the recipe is. Thanks for saying mine looks better though! Hope you pop by again soon.
