Lemon Drizzle Cake

Lemon drizzle cake
Lemon Drizzle Cake - Sweetened with Canderel® Sugarly


1. Preheat the oven to 170ºC/Gas 3.

2. In the mixer bowl of a food mixer, add the low fat spread and Canderel® Sugarly and beat together until light and fluffy. Add the lemon zest and olive oil and beat again until incorporated.

3. Now add the eggs one at a time, along with a tbsp of flour, then fold in the remaining flour and baking powder followed by the polenta and lemon juice.

4. Spoon the mixture into the tin and level the surface. Bake for about 60-70 minutes, loosely covering with foil towards the end if it is beginning to brown too much. It is ready when a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. It will also just about feel firm in the middle.

5. Mix the remaining lemon juice with the Canderel® Sugarly and whilst the cake is still make small holes in the cake with a skewer then pour the mixture over and leave to cool completely before removing from the tin and slicing to serve.
