Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a 23x33cm (9x13 in) baking tray or line with baking parchment.
In a bowl, cream together the butter and 170g (6 oz) sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat until well blended. Fold in the flour and the lemon zest. Pour the cake mixture into the prepared baking tray and smooth the surface.
Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from the oven.
In a small bowl mix together the lemon juice and the remainder of the sugar until syrupy. Set aside.
While the cake is still hot, drizzle the lemon glaze over the top. Leave to cool.
