About this recipe: This lemon drizzle cake in a loaf tin has a delicate hint of ginger. The decadence of Grand Marnier makes this lemon drizzle loaf special. Great with tea.
I didn't bother with the liquer and added more ginger. I really like the recipe and it is popular with others. My icing never looks like the picture it just soaks into the cake. - 16 Dec 2011
I'm quite willing to accept that there's something wrong with my oven because this was ready in 20 minutes with the top totally burnt! I sliced the top off though and it still tasted lovely. The photo accompanying this recipe is misleading because the icing was clearly made with icing sugar, not caster sugar as the recipe stipulates. I will try this recipe again in the future and tweak my oven settings. - 01 Apr 2016
Oh my god. I made this for the first time, with a few changes, and the result was INCREDIBLE. Melt-in-your-mouth texture, tender... mmmm. I reduced sugar to 2/3 cup, and beat the butter (yes, butter) for 3mins, sugar for 3 mins, eggs + extracts (vanilla, almond, orange)for 3 mins, (used sour cream instead of buttermilk) and then added the final ingredients- plus I alternated between flour mixture and liquid beginning with flour mixture. (the flour, salt, baking powder) I guarentee my mixing method will work. - 12 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
