Nigella Lawson Lemon Drizzle Loaf Cake Recipe

It's time to bake a birthday cake, wow they do come around quick. This one has my uncle's name on it, well so to speak, and his cake of choice - Lemon Drizzle Cake.  I used the recipe for Lemon Syrup Loaf Cake from Nigella Lawson, How to be a Domestic Goddess Book.  
Recipe for Lemon Drizzle Cake

I had a slight problem during the bake, I opened the oven door with ten minutes remaining on the timer as I thought the cake  looked rather brown.  In the process of checking the cake I caught my hand on the shelf in the oven, then ended up nearly knocking the tin off the shelf. All of which resulted in the oven door being opened for too long. As soon as I shut the door I could see the cake sinking right in front of my eyes. Still never mind these things happen, and the cake still tasted wonderful.

I am entering this into the Forever Nigella Recipe Challenge over at Maison Cupcake

  2. I was just going to say exactly the same thing as Janice. And the drizzled icing will make it taste even better. Thanks for taking part in Forever Nigella!

  3. Ah....what a shame as Sarah and Janice have said.....but I bet it still tasted amazing, cannot beat a lemon drizzle cake!
    My blog has moved by the way...from blogger to Wordpress here:

  4. Well the cake looks lovely despite it's mishap. Hope your hand was OK.

  5. Looks lovely, is i'm making this cake tomorrow (think it's called my mother in laws maderia loaf in the book). Was not going to bother with a syrup but will hunt for a lemon syrup recipe now.
