This is basically a grown up lemon drizzle cake, but ohh, it’s so good.I have to admit, there is something wonderful about a really crisp G&T, and everyone loves cake – which makes this recipe a real winner. It’s based on a basic sponge recipe, so it comes under the category of super simple baking. Enjoy!
- 4 medium eggs
- 2 lemons
- 8-10 shots of your favourite gin
- dash of tonic water
- 150g granulated sugar
- juice of 1 lemon
Weigh the eggs then measure the butter, caster sugar and self-raising flour to the same weight. No scales? An average medium egg weighs 55g – so just convert everything into cups based on this.
Beat in the eggs one at a time, and then mix in the flour and the zest of both lemons.
Mix the remainder of gin, sugar, tonic water and lemon juice until you have a smooth mixture. Prick the surface of your still warm cake all over and pour the mixture allllll over the cake. Let it soak in before cutting the cake or removing it from its tin. This makes this cake so moist it’s unreal!
