    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 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.

    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.

    My neighbour always used to bake this cake when we were children, and now I finally have the recipe. This is a great cake to cut into squares or slices and to wrap individually for cake sales, packed lunches or school fetes.
