Author Notes: I love a lemon drizzle cake. As a child I remember the smells that used to come from the oven when a lemon drizzle was cooking. I truly believe that anyone should be able to have their cake and eat it, even if you are don’t consume dairy, gluten or refined sugar- and this one tastes like the real deal. Gorgeous soft cake with the sharp lemon drizzle kicking in, this is the perfect tea time treat.Madeleine Shaw
