Lemon Drizzle

I've been trying to be good these days...not easy everyday when all you crave is carbs in the evening!
I was doing so well this week - check out my superfoods salad...

And then THIS happened...

Best ever Lemon Drizzle Cake. I have now perfected the recipe and added a few bits to the original recipe I'd found online.

* Beat together 125g of butter and 125g of sugar then add the zest of a lemon
* Add 3 whole eggs, one by one
* Mix in 135g of self-raising flour and 50g of powdered almonds
* Add the juice of 2 lemons and as many poppy seeds as you like!

Bake for about an hour at 180. Leave to rest for 10 minutes, then cover with a mix of icing sugar, lemon juice and more zest. This is the trickiest part - I use a toothpick to make sure my cake has enough holes in beforehand. It's nicer if the juice soaks all the way through the cake too!

Take my word for it - Best Lemon Drizzle Cake ever!
