Lemon Drizzle Cake Bars

These cake bars have the perfect combination of sweet and sour. Plus because of their relatively small size they make a great and not too indulgent snack!

4oz caster sugar
4oz margarine (at room temperature)
4oz self-raising flour
3 medium eggs
lemon juice

    Preheat oven to 200^. Beat eggs together.

     Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the egg to the mixture and mix together. Repeat with 3-4 teaspoons of lemon juice,               depending on how lemon-y you want your cakes.

 Pour mixture into a square or rectangular tray and place in oven for around 20 minutes. Whilst    that's baking you can make the 'drizzle' part of the title.

Lemon Syrup;
200g of caster sugar
50ml of water
lemon juice

Boil the sugar and water in a pan until the syrup is clear. Let cool for ten minutes and then add   two teaspoons of lemon juice. Once cooled pour over cake and once it's absorbed cut the cake into rectangles.

Arrange on plate in however fashion you want, I went for the traditional jenga!


  1. Oh my those sound so good - I have a weakness for cake, but anything that is made with lemon is a must. Going to add these to my to bake list!

    1. I think most people have a weakness for cake! Plus they're so easier and relatively easy to make!

  2. They look delicious - I love lemon cake! The glaze looks so good as well x

    1. Thank you! It was my first attempt at making glaze, I think it went pretty well! haha
