Wednesday 25th November is Sir Archibald Garrod’s birthday and to celebrate we are asking our supporters to host a Coffee Morning to raise awareness and money for AKU. In this weeks blog, AKU team members Eve and Lydia bake their own cakes to share recipe ideas and inspire AKU supporters to host their own Coffee Morning!
Eve and Lydia started off with a Lemon drizzle cake. This is a very simple recipe, which always go down a treat at tea parties!
225g unsalted butter, softened
225g caster sugar
finely grated zest of 1 lemon
225g self-raising flour
For the drizzle topping:
juice 1 ½ lemons
85g caster sugar
Start by preheating the oven to 180C/fan (160C/gas). Then beat together the butter and sugar until pale and creamy, before adding the eggs one at a time, while slowly mixing through.
Sift the flour into the mixture and add the lemon zest and mix it all together.
Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper, spoon the mixture into the tin and level the top. Your cake is now ready to go in the oven!
