Double Lemon Drizzle Loaf

Double Lemon Drizzle Loaf

I love the zesty sugary crust on this Double Lemon Drizzle Loaf Cake. Pouring the drizzle mixture onto the cake when it's just out of the oven ramps up it's zingy lemon flavour and ensures the cake stays lovely and moist. It's a forgiving cake in many ways and will happily sit in a cake tin for up to 5 days and it also freezes well too (just wrap it in clingfilm and then foil).

I think it has to be one of my all time favourites, especially when I serve it sliced and spread with homemade lemon curd and a dollop of clotted cream. I've even made french toast with the stale ends before for a little weekend breakfast treat. Make it today - I promise you wont be disappointed.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
