Lemon Drizzle Cake

This evening I had an immense craving to make lemon drizzle cake. I’ve never baked it before, but I didn’t let this didn’t stop me. All I can say is that I love lemon drizzle and my effort was no exception. The recipe is by Tana Ramsey (Gordon’s misses)and I’ll certainly be using the recipe again.
