Lemon drizzle layer cake

I usually make a lemon drizzle tray bake but had some lemon curd to use up so tweaked the recipe to make a layer cake instead
225g soft margarine (I used Stork)
225g caster sugar
225g SR flour (I used Sainsbury’s Free From SR flour)
1 tsp baking powder
4 eggs
6tbsp milk
zest 1 lemon
100g granulated sugar
Juice 1 lemon
Lemon curd

1. Preheat oven to 180 (fan)
2. Put all cake ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk with an electric whick for 3-4 minutes until thoroughly combined.
3. Pour into 3 cake tins and bake for 20 minutes.
4. Remove from tins and prick the top layer all over with a cocktail stick.
5. Mix together the glaze.
6. Sandwich the layers together with lemon curd
7. Pour the glaze over the cake, it will run off the edges!

    The pictures itself are so mouth watering. I don’t know how to prepare something but will definitely ask my mum to try this out. Thank you.

  2. This looks tasty! My fiancΓ©’s favourite cake is lemon drizzle. I usually do a one layered cake with frosting, but this looks rather impressive. I will have to try!

    That cake looks AMAZING. AS the only person in our house who loves Lemon I don’t get to eat this type of cake anywhere near enough!
