Epic Lemon Drizzle Cake

Vitamin C from citrus fruits like oranges and lemons are great for keeping colds and coughs at bay. And helpfully, they're also great with our Serapheena Jowar and Sweet Potato Flour Vanilla Pound or Keto Almond Flour Vanilla Victoria cake mixes! Use the Every Day 6" boxes to make a small loaf, or the Gluten-Free Big Box of Happiness for a large loaf.

Bursting with bright citrus flavours, this cake is a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. 

Epic Lemon Drizzle Cake

Serves: 6 to 8  |  Prep time: 5 min
Pictured: cake made with 1 box Serapheena 6" Gluten-Free Vanilla Pound Cake Mix baked in a 9" x 4" loaf tin


For the cake:
1 box Vanilla Pound Cake Mix (or mug cake)
3 limes - zest and juice
For the glaze:
1/2 cup icing sugar
Zest of 1 lime 
Few drops of lime juice
1. Prepare batter as directed on the box
2. Add juice and zest of 3 limes and mix well
3. Bake as directed. (Loaf tins take longer in the oven than round cakes).
4. Allow cake to cool.
5. Prepare lemon glaze by mixing lemon zest + a few drops of lime juice into the icing sugar to get a thick paste.
5. Drizzle lemon glaze over the cake. Garnish with lime slices + lemon zest 
A word on lemon zest. Only go as far as the coloured part of the skin. The inner white part is bitter and should be avoided.
In the lime light: We use limes in India, not lemons, and I prefer the bright sharp contrast with the warm Vanilla flavours of the cake. If you're in Kolkata, please do use the local gonghoraj lebu for their superb delicate flavour.
