Lemon Drizzle Cake

A Sponge favourite, this decadent lemon drizzle cake is bursting with flavour! The soft lemon-flavoured sponge is filled with delightfully tangy lemon buttercream infused with real lemon juice and zesty lemon oil.

Also available in gluten free

The sponge is infused with natural lemon oil and made with eggs to create a light and fluffy citrus cake. Natural lemon oil is also used in the buttercream and white chocolate is drizzled on top.

  • I selected a simpler cake this time, based on my wife's preferences for her birthday. The cake was moist, a nice slightly crisper topping with the icing and just the right amount of lemon. Top job all round.
