    4. Put it into a 20cm loose-bottomed cake tin which has been lined with parchment.
    5. Put it into a pre-heated oven at 180 C / Gas 4 for 35 to 45 minutes or until a cocktail stick has been pricked through the cake and it comes out clean.
    6. When the cake comes out prick it all over.
    7. Make the drizzle by combining 75g of granulated sugar along with the juice of the lemons. Mix the sugar and lemon juice well until the sugar has been dissolved.
    8. Once the cake has cooled down drizzle over the lemon drizzle, let it soak in and ENJOY!


    After the fourth egg add a couple of tablespoons of the flour to stop the mixture from curdling.
