this cake following a discussion about lemon drizzle cakes, on one of the message-boards I use. I remembered this as one of the best lemon cakes I'd tasted, but others disagreed, so I thought it must be time to try it again.
Dan calls this a lemon drizzle cake, but it doesn't really fit the accepted description of a drizzle cake, as there is only a small amount of frosing spread on top of the cake, not a large amount of syrup poured over a cake which has been punctured with holes in order to absorb it. That doesn't worry me, as most drizzle cakes turn out too wet for my liking, unless I'm using it as a dessert.
The flavour was as I remember, not-too-sweet and very lemony, with a crisp, tart lemon frosting. I'd still consider it one of the best lemon cake recipes I know, but perhaps it would disappoint those who like very moist drizzle cakes.
