Lemon Cake with Honey Lemon drizzle

And it is a year already!

This blog was born with little or no idea how long it would sustain but here we are - Our first milestone!
And we intend to attain many more.
It has been a tremendous learning experience all along. We confess that we are not the experts, we experiment, trial and errors along the way and happy successes too.
We have presented our successes to you and learnt from our failures to better the food we present to you in every way.

My gratitude to all my family, friends and everyone of you for the encouragement through your constant likes and comments!

Cheers to one year of happiness through food blogging!

Lemon Cake with Honey Lemon Drizzle - that is our latest fad.


Here is the recipe for you -


For the cake - 
  1. All Purpose Flour - 2 cups
  2. Sugar - 1 cup
  3. Vegetable Oil - 1 cup
  4. Egg - 3 no.s
  5. Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
  6. Baking powder - 1 tsp
  7. Lemon zest - 2 lemons
  8. Lemon juice - 2 lemons
  9. salt - 1/4 tsp
For the drizzle - 
  1. Honey - 1/4 cup
  2. Water - 1/4 cup
  3. Lemon juice - 1 lemon
  4. Sugar - 2 tbsp


Pre-heat the oven at 180 degree centigrade for 15 minutes. Keep your baking tray ready by greasing it. Sieve together the flour and baking powder and keep aside.

Take the oil and sugar in a bowl. Break open the eggs into the same bowl and whisk the ingredients together. Pour in a tsp of vanilla essence and once the ingredients have combined well, add the sieved dry ingredients along with salt and fold in the cake mix. 

Zest in two lemons (ensuring that you don't go in too deep) into the batter. Add the lemon juice taken from two lemons and fold this into the cake mix.

Transfer this to the greased cake tray.  Bake it for at 180 degrees till a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
Baking time varies depending on the size of your oven so keep a tab.

In the meantime, bring together the ingredients for the drizzle - sugar, lemon juice, honey and water. Ensure that the water you use is warm. Mix well to form a syrup.

Prick your cake roughly to form holes for the syrup to seep in. Gently pour the syrup on the cake and let the cake absorb it. Keep the cake covered in a cling film for a day.

Add topping of your choice! We chose to have streaks of whipping cream across the cake as you can see in the photographs.

Happy Baking!
