This lemon curd cake is very moist and easy to make. I also sometimes put them in cup cases to make easy for a packed lunch or picnic.

I'm a sucker for lemon and coconut so this cake is perfection to me! It's more of a tea cake than a dessert cake.

This is a quick lemon cake that benefits from the lovely addition of blueberries. You could leave out the berries if you're after a classic lemon drizzle cake, though the blueberries are heavenly!

This is a very light and moist lemon sponge cake. It is a favourite with friends and family and especially the children. It isn't too sharp and not too sweet either. Definitely worth a try!

A very easy tasty and easy lemon drizzle cake that is better the soggier it is! Let the cake rest for a good hour before serving to ensure all of the lemon is soaked through.

This is an easy recipe for two lovely lemon and poppy seed loaves. The yoghurt helps to keep these cakes deliciously moist! Enjoy as is with a cuppa, warm with butter. Or you can top these with a lovely lemon drizzle icing.

One of my fave recipes that my grandma taught me how to make! My mum doesn't eat dairy so I substitute the milk with soya milk and it still tastes the same! It's really tangy and is lovely with the little lemon decorations!
