Recipe: Lemon Drizzle Fairy Cakes

I’ve been getting my baking hat on! My friends decided to have a girly afternoon tea party as one of our last meet ups before the New Year, and so I decided to make some lemon drizzle fairy cakes for it! They certainly went down well, but I hope you guys enjoy them as much as we did!

The recipe was originally supposed to make 12, but I actually ended making double that! I think it just depends on how much you fill up the cake cases (I did just a little more than halfway to give them space to rise).

140g unsalted butter/soft margarine, softened
140g caster sugar
3 eggs
100g self-raising flower
25g cornflour
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
1tsp vanilla extract
100g icing sugar, sifted

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees. Arrange cake cases in fairy cake tin. Beat together butter, vanilla extract and caster sugar, and then one by one beat in the eggs.
  2. Sift the flour and cornflour into the bowl then fold into the batter until the ingredients are well combined. Stir in the lemon zest. Half fill each cake case with the batter.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes until risen and golden. Allow to cool on a wire rack
  4. Beat together the icing sugar, lemon juice and a splash of boiling water until you have a smooth icing. Drizzle the icing over the cakes and leave to set.

Now enjoy! Let me know if you like the recipe; I would love to see your creations!
