Lemon drizzle cake with a twist

The thing is I have been so busy 
It's not that I am neglecting this blog 
It's just that I am working on a very exciting new project 
which really came about in many ways because of this blog
I can't tell you about it until September 
but it's VERY exciting
wish me luck 

Meanwhile Ireland is in the midst of storms 
windy, rainy, sleety wetness
when your window looks like this 
light the fires
snuggle up with something comforting like

Lemon drizzle cake - a classic 
why mess with it ?
well why not 
I added some Jasmine green tea 
and the resulting combination is quite delicious
The earthiness of the tea cuts through the sharp lemon and grounds it 
perfect with steaming hot tea on a day like today


2 tablespoon jasmine tea 
5 tablespoon boiling water
125g butter
175g sugar
2 large eggs
zest of 1 lemon
175g self raising flour
pinch of salt

juice of 1 lemon
100g icing sugar
2 tablespoons jasmine tea

place tea in a shallow dish and add 5 tablespoons of boiling water
set aside
cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy
add eggs 1 at a time
add lemon zest and s.r. flour and combine
add salt
pour in jasmine tea and tealeaves fold into mixture

spoon into lined loaf tin

bake for 45mins or until cake skewer comes out clean 

while the cake is baking make your syrup 
add juice of 1 lemon to 2 tbspn jasmine tea and icing sugar in a small pan
heat slowly
leave to infuse

when cake is done remove from oven and skewer with holes 
pour syrup onto hot cake 
(you can strain the syrup or leave tea leaves to sit on top of cake I chose to strain it)

leave to cool slightly



  1. Ah this recipe looks gorgeous. I'm just baking an apple and blueberry loaf but this sounds delicious I'll have to try it soon. Hah and its funny I sort of miss those Irish storms; they just aren't the same anywhere else!
