Z is for Zesty Lactofree Lemon Drizzle Cake

I subscribed to Baked & Delicious sometime ago, and with the advent of Lactofree spreadable, and now Lactofree cream, I have been delightedly plunging into the recipes and converting them into lactose-free goodness.  I love tart, zesty tastes, and this is a recipe that I cannot wait to try.

  • 175g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 225g self-raising flour

  2. Cream together the spreadable and sugar until light and fluffy
  3. Whick in eggs a little at a time, adding a spoonful of the flour if the mixture threatens to curdle
  4. Sift in remaining flour & fold in with a metal spoon
  5. Fold in Lactofree, lemon zest & half the lemon juice
  6. Put mixture in the loaf pan, level the top & bake for 1 hour
