Lemon Drizzle Cake

I have recently rekindled my love of baking and I haven't really blogged about it but my mom asked me to make her this cake but I thought it wasn't going to be any good - turned out I was wrong! This cake would not have been my usual type of cake to eat but it was really good and it was so easy and incredibly tasty that I can't wait to make it again.
 
Cake:
175g (6oz) Flora Regular
175g (6oz) self-raising flour
½ tsp baking powder
175g (6oz) caster sugar
3 extra large eggs
2 tbsps low fat milk
Finely grated rind of 2 lemons
 
Lemon Syrup:
Juice of 2 lemons, strained
115g (4oz) caster sugar

Preparation:

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Then add the remaining cake ingredients and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth.
 
2. Spoon the mixture into a greased and base lined 19x12x9cm loaf tin.
 
3.Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 1 hour or until cooked.
 
4. Take out of the tin and allow to cool on a wire tray.
 
5. Put the lemon juice and sugar in a saucepan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved.
 
6. Whilst cake is warm, drizzle the syrup over so that it soaks into the cake.
 



 
 
 
Have you ever tried a cake like this? If you make it, let me know how it goes?
