If you are looking for a traditional Lemon Drizzle Cake, which is quick and easy, then this is the cake for you. I class it as a ‘proper’ lemon drizzle cake as it has the sugary thick drizzle that sits on top of the cake. The sponge is so light and fluffy and the sugary top gives a nice crunch. It’s an ‘all-in-one’ recipe so takes no time at all to bake.
This marble cake, not only looks pretty but also gives the perfect combination of vanilla and chocolate sponge in one cake. I think the main reason this loaf cake caught my eye was the attractive chocolate and vanilla buttercream frosting and of course the sprinkles just add the finishing touch.

Simnel Cake has become a traditional Easter cake. The cake is full of fruit and spice, which gives a lovely moist cake, packed full of flavour.
