Easter Inspiration


















Happy Easter!

Folksy Friday #32

Spring Cleaning & Storage

I was browsing Folksy looking for items to feature under the Spring Cleaning theme when I got sidetracked and came across a lot of lovely new items that I just had to include...hence the storage bit, so lets just say, this week its all about getting things in order, becoming a little more organised...and not necessarily cleaning!  ;)
Hope you enjoy my choices

Lemon Drizzle Cake

Ok, so since Ive been made housebound due to High Blood Pressure Ive had my baking head on...and yesterday I just fancied some lemon drizzle cake, leaves the most amazing smell in your kitchen and makes a pregnant lady very happy!

Ingredients:
  • 225g unsalted butter , softened
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • finely grated zest 1 lemon
  • 225g self-raising flour

For the drizzle:
  • juice 11⁄2 lemon
  • 85g caster sugar


Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4

Beat together the butter and sugar until pale and creamy



Sift in the flour


then add the lemon zest and mix until well combined


add the eggs, one at a time, slowly mixing through


Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper or a paper liner, then
spoon in the mixture and level the top with a spoon.
I had enough mix left to fill a few muffin cases too!


Bake for 45-50 mins until a thin skewer inserted
into the centre of the cake comes out clean


While the cake is cooling in its tin, mix together
the lemon juice and sugar to make the drizzle


Prick the warm cake all over with a skewer or fork, then pour over the drizzle
 the juice will sink in and the sugar will form a lovely, crisp topping.
Leave in the tin until completely cool, then remove and serve...yummie :)
