Lemon Loaf Recipe

Lemon Loaf Recipe
This cake is incredibly moist and tangy with a great lemon flavour. It’s really refreshing to eat with a glass of lemonade in the summer or a lovely cuppa in the winter ♥
Ingredients (cake):

  • 225g unsalted butter
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 225g self raising flour
  • 4 eggs
  • grated zest of 2 lemons

Ingredients (sauce):

  • freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon
  • 55g caster sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 170C / Gas 3.
  • Beat the butter and caster sugar together well using an electric mixer.
  • Add the eggs one at a time to the mixture, mixing well before adding the next egg.
  • Sift the flour into the mixture and add the lemon zest. Mix until well combined.
  • Line a 25cm x 14cm loaf tin with greaseproof paper and pour in the mixture and flatten the top using the back of a spoon.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes until the cake is cooked. To test whether it is ready, use a cake tester or skewer to pierce the centre of the cake and if it comes out clean then it is ready.
  • To make the sauce mix together the lemon juice and caster sugar in a bowl.
  • Use a fork to pierce the top of the cake all over and then using a spoon, distribute the sauce evenly over the top of the cake.
  • Leave the cake to cool and then remove it from the tin.
