Eggless Lemon drizzle Cake

Mission accomplished! I had been thinking of baking  a lemony cake for quite a time now and finally today I did it. To my surprise this cake has puffed very well as such my loaf pan was somewhat small for it. It tasted awesome and I loved it. This is my weekend treat. Hope it survives the weekend. Here is my recipe for 'Eggless Lemon Drizzle Cake'.

This recipe serves 8 people.


1½ cup of self raising flour.
¾ cup butter.
1 cup condensed milk.
1 tsp baking soda.
½ tsp baking powder.
Grated rind and juice of one lemon.
½ cup sprite or 7 up or any soft drink.

For the lemon drizzle:

Grated rind and juice of 2 lemons.
¼ cup granulated sugar.


Take a deep bowl and pour in the melted butter. Stir it nicely with a wooden spoon or a hand mixer. Add the condensed milk and mix for another 2 minutes. Now add the lemon juice, grated rind and give it a nice stir. Mix AP flour, baking soda & baking powder. Slowly pour in this dry mixture into the liquid mixture and keep stirring. Add the soft drink and stir till the batter is uniform. Pour the mixture into a tin prepared by greasing the tin with butter and sprinkled with flour. Place it in an oven preheated at 180 C for 15 minutes and bake it at 180 C for 40 minutes till golden. Using a skewer prick the cake at the centre, if it comes out clean, the cake is done. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes.

Citrus and sweet, this cake is a real teatime treat.

Prick holes all over the cake with a tooth pick. Place the drizzle ingredients in a bowl and mix together, and then drizzle the liquid over the warm cake. Leave until completely cold. Take the cake out on a plate by turning the container upside down.
Slice and serve.

    @ Arundhati:
    Yes, we can add soft drinks to cake. As they are fizzy, it helps in puffing the cake.
