For Marta and her "ingredient of the month" which is the lemon, I couldn't not make my favourite cake. The Lemon Drizzle!
There's another recipe for a Lemon drizzle cake here on the blog. A Raymond Blanc recipe which for me was the best until now. Until now because after trying this Violet's one, I changed my mind.
This cake is moist, delicious, lemony and everything you want a lemon drizzle cake to be so, you better try it because you'll fall in love with it!
The recipe is from Claire Ptak, The Violet Bakery Cookbook. A stunning book that I truly adore and if you ever have the opportunity, don't miss a visit to her beautiful Cake Shop and Café in Hackney, east London. I went there last October and had the best Coconut layer cake ever and you can trust me because I love my coconut cake so, I'm very demanding on that matter...
