Woo hoo! we are back.
Now my Star is getting better and things have settled down at home it’s time for us to start sharing our cooking fun again. Boo and the Little Man helped me make a Lemon Drizzle Cake which happens to be one of my very favourite cakes.
I’m thrilled that we were able to take part in the Bahlsen Family Bake Off and we have our fingers tightly crossed for the wonderful prize of a weekend in Legoland.
You can see our entry here:
I would also like to give a mention to Steph’s Two Girls and The Brick Castle who are also taking part in the bake off and linked up their entries to the last Kids in the Kitchen (which seems such a long time ago now!)
You can see all the rest of the entries on the Bahlsen Family Bake off You Tube page.
A big good luck to everyone taking part x
Lemon Drizzle Cake
- 175g unsalted butter
- 175g caster sugar
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 225g self-raising flour
- 2 tbs milk
- finely grated zest of one lemon
- 6 tbs lemon juice
- 3 tbs golden syrup
lightly grease a 2lb loaf pan
The Little man loves measuring so he measured the butter and sugar and then Boo mixed them together until they were creamy.
The Little Man beat the eggs with a fork and Boo added them to the mixture a little at a time.
The Little Man measured out the flour and Boo folded it into the batter.
Mummy grated the lemon and added it to the batter
The Little Man juiced the lemon and we added about a tablespoon to the cake batter saving the rest for the drizzle.
Boo mixed in the milk and then we put the batter in the loaf pan and I put it in the oven.
Just before the cake had finished cooking I heated up the remaining lemon juice with the golden syrup in a pan. When the cake was cooked I pricked it all over with a skewer and then poured the lemon drizzle all over while still in the pan. I then left the cake to cool before turning it out.
If you wish you can make an icing for this cake using 1 tbs of lemon juice with 50g icing sugar.
Now it’s your turn, please come and share your recipes that you have made with your kids help and link up to my linky.
