Another firm customer favourite; this very lemony, very moist sponge is utterly delicious and light, yet firm enough to allow for carving and sugarpaste decoration. We have included our recipe for lemon curd buttercream and also Lemon swiss meringue buttercream (in conjunction with the Icing recipes card)
Brand new this card now includes variations to create Lemon & elderflower, limoncello and St Clements. There are also step by step instructions on how to bake crunch-topped luscious lemon cake bars (soft, moist lemon cake with a layer of lemon curd and with a very lemony crunchy topping - these are very yummy!)
Scaled for different sized tins from a 4 inch (10cm) to a 15 inch (36cm) with cooking times with clear step by step instructions. (Brand new - larger sizes)
Bonus tips on how to line a cake tin perfectly and the art of putting a cake in the oven (yes really!) Guidance on storage and freezing instructions.
We've included many more of our top tips to ensure success every time.
My absolute favourite and my Mum’s too. I used this recipe for my cousin’s wedding cake and everyone said it tasted wonderful.

Super-duper as Annabelle would say! Such a light and fresh cake with plenty of flavour.

Gorgeous, moist, a firm favourite with all the staff at school. Don’t be afraid to use all the syrup. Leave it in the tin for the recommended time.

Oh wow! A moistly, magnificent make! Combined with the lemon buttercream, which is included on the card, this cake is simply divine. A zesty treat everyone enjoys.

Delicious – a real favourite with my family and friends.

This is my customers' favourite cake. They love how light it is and how "lemony" it tastes. They find it has more lemon flavour than most cakes, and is fast becoming the most requested cake for returning customers.

As with all Annabelle Jane's cake recipes this cake is moist and delicious. Just the right amount of lemon and a very refreshing flavour.

So easy to follow and produces a very tasty cake that everyone will love. Cards are also wipe clean so no fear of it getting ruined when on the side when baking.

A deliously moist sponge with a lovely lemony zing! If you follow the recipe & instructions to the letter you cannot go wrong. Firm enough to cover with sugarpaste beautifully.

I don't really like chocolate; I'm a vanilla type of girl but I absolutely love the luscious lemon cake, its so lemony + moist; such a great flavour.
— Judith Jones, 26th September 2019
This is my favourite cake. I make it often. I always brush the lemon drizzel on the layers.
— Penny Wilcock, 26th September 2019
Amazing cake and the recipe is so easy to follow. Great that it has quantities for different sizes. Always works perfectly,
— Laura Morford, 26th September 2019
Absolutely love the lemon drizzle cake, really easy to make + delicious. When icing I put less lemon juice in, so it doesn't get too moist.
— Susan Gent, 25th September 2019
ooh I love this cake its my all time favourite.
— Sharon Hodsdon, 5th February 2022
LUSCIOUS by Name and nature! Lemon cakes have always fallen a bit flat in our house, the never tasted quite “lemony” enough until I switched to this recipe - they do now! The addition of the lemon buttercream recipe on the back means it’s a 2 for 1 and definitely one that should be in everyone’s recipe box!
— Marie Roostan, 11th February 2022
Makes an amazingly moist cake that is so appetising and hard to resist! Really clear step by step instructions that ensure success every time.

— Diane B., 8th February 2022
I suppose this is my favourite recipe card of all time. It is such a moist cake and so lemony. I would recommend it to anyone.
— Penny, 8th February 2022
The best lemon cake recipe you'll ever find - light, moist and full of lemon flavour. The recipe card has quantities for all different cake sizes which is so helpful.
