World Baking Day... keep calm and eat cake!!

Happy World Baking Day!

At Edge Student Living, there’s nothing we enjoy more than a good piece of cake! To celebrate the occasion that is World Baking Day, we thought we’d share this really easy recipe with you. It’s one of our all-time favourites and if you’ve never baked a cake before, this is a good place to start. You won’t believe how incredible it tastes… a good one to try which will impress your family and friends!

It’s time to get your bake on and give it a go! smiley


Easy-peasy Lemon Drizzle Cake

  • 175g self-raising flour
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 175g butter
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 2 eggs
  • Grated rind of a lemon
  • For the drizzle: 75g caster sugar and juice of the lemon
  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160/gas 4. Line a loaf tin (will fit in 1lb loaf tin but we use 2lb)
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, butter, milk, eggs and lemon rind.
  3. Pop the mixture in the loaf tin and cook for 40-50 minutes until golden.
  4. Once out of the oven, leave in the tin and heat the drizzle ingredients together in a pan until the sugar has dissolved. Poke a few holes in the cake a pour over the drizzle syrup. We sometimes like to sprinkle an extra bit of sugar over the top of the cake at this point too but it’s not essential!
  5. When cool, remove from tin and enjoy!
