Another lemon Drizzle Cake with photo
« on: June 20, 2010, 06:57:37 pm »
Another Lemon Drizzle Cake.
85g Butter or margarine.
170g Sugar
225g S.R. flour
1 egg
140g milk
1 lemon, the rind (carefully removed) and the juice.
115g Granulated sugar

Place the 170g sugar and the thinly pared lemon rind in the TM bowl, grind 10 sec/speed 8.

Add the butterfly and then the butter and beat 5 minutes/speed 3, stopping occasionally to scrape down the mixture.

With the motor running at speed 3 add the egg and the milk Remove the butterfly and if needed scrape down the cake mixture.

Add the flour and mix 20 sec/speed 3. Use your spatula to mix in any residue flour.

Place the mixture in a lined loaf pan, mine measures 19 x 9 x 6 cm.

Cook in a preheated oven 190oC (170oC fan assisted) for 45 mins, my cake took 50 mins.

Mix the granulated sugar the lemon juice and spread this over the hot cake.

This recipe was given to me by a friend when I was living in Bahrain in the 80ís(I believe it's a Mary Berry recipe). I have adapted it for the TM. In the original recipe soft type margarine was used, which gives a softer batter. Over the years I have changed it to using butter. Also I now make the drizzle topping. In the original recipe you just poured the juice of the lemon over the hot cake. I find that lemons differ so much that it you just pour the juice over the cooked cake it can make it sour but you may like this version.
I have lost count to how many people I have passed the original recipe onto.  Enjoy!

saffie00 - This is the first successful cake recipe I have made in my new Thermomix. After countless flavorless disasters, my husband and I managed to make this recipe in the Thermomix and it is divine. Kids love it too. Thank you for sharing, and giving me a little of vote of confidence to continue experimenting.

bickie - Great recipe, thank you for converting. Just the right combination of tang and sweetness. And the crumb not too over processed. I think your method of creaming butter and sugar first makes the difference. My family had asked me to stop doing thermomix cakes and go back to kitchen aid cakes as they didn't like the texture. This was a last resort test - and passed with flying colours.

Thanks CC. The rest of the family love lemon type things and our baby lemon tree has just ripened its first fruit, so I think this will be the recipe I use it for.

CC,looks delicious and I love your cake liner. Haven't seen them over here. Another for the ever growing to do list, I keep feeling guilty I haven't converted any recipes and posted but I haven't cooked any of my old faithfuls since I got Thermie and everyone is enjoying the variety.

I use these parchment liners all the time and they do different sizes from Lakeland.Here's the link to the range they supply.

I don't know where you will be staying when you are in the UK but here's a link to their stores throughout the country

Other hardware shops do sell them but usually they are only sell one particular size.If you find a Lakeland store you will have a ball shopping. ;) ;) ;D Their customer service is excellent and the shop assistants are so helpful, so just ask if you can't find it. :)
If for some reason you can't get any I can always pop some into the post to you. ;)

Cornish Cream, the cake looks beautiful. My favourite lemon cake recipe has a topping like that, but like Bedlam commented since I got Clancy at Christmas time, I have been mainly trying everyone elses recipes rather than cooking golden oldies.  When I get around to it, I will certainly compare the method and ingredients with this recipe, so thankyou. 

I was also interested in the cake tin liner--thanks for the link--and the fact that you lived in Bahrain!  I was born there! In 1964 when my Dad was working for British Petroleum.  My parents have been back in the late 90's but I haven't been since I was about 7 or 8.

Thanks once again for another tempting recipe.

What is S.R. flour?  Here in Canada we have all-purpose, cake & pastry and bread flour.  The protein content is lowest in the cake & pastry, highest in bread and in the middle is the all-purpose.

ElsieD, S R flour means self-raising flour. Lived in Canada for a short time but can't remember what it was called there.  It is ordinary white flour with a ratio of 2 tsp of baking powder per cup of flour added.
