0/5 Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas mark 4 and grease and line a loaf tin (8 x 21cm) with greaseproof paper.
  • Mix together the butter and sugar, lemon zest and elderflower cordial until pale and creamy, then add the eggs one at a time. Slowly mixing altogether and then sift in the flour and baking powder and mix until well combined.
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 45 - 50 minutes until a thin skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  • Whilst the cake is baking prepare the drizzle by placing the lemon juice, water, elderflower cordial and sugar into a saucepan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved completely. Prick the warm cake all over with a skewer or fork, then pour over the drizzle - the juice will sink in and the sugar will form a lovely, crisp topping.
  • Leave in the tin until completely cool, then remove and serve. Enjoy!
