Mini lemon drizzle cakes 

Spoil your taste buds this with some scrumptious mini lemon drizzle cakes, a little bake with a big taste.


  • 250g pack of butter (softened)
  • 400g caster sugar

  • Juice of 3 lemons  

For the drizzle icing topping

  • 30g granulated sugar
  • Juice 1 lemon

  • With an electric whisk, whisk the butter, 250g of the sugar, eggs, flour, zest of 2 lemons and juice from 1 lemon until just combined – don’t over-whisk. Fill the cases two thirds full, then bake on a middle shelf for 30 mins, until a skewer poked in comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 mins, then transfer cakes to a cooling rack on a tray and poke each a few times with a skewer.
  • Pour remaining lemon juice over remaining 150g sugar and zest 1 lemon, and immediately spoon over the cakes. Leave to cool.
  • Mix the icing sugar & lemon juice with just enough water to give a runny, but not watery, icing. Then top and drizzle over the individual lemon cakes. Leave to set.

*You can then add and top whatever decoration you like, we went for fresh blueberries and chocolate drops.
