Julies Honey Lemon Drizzle Cake

Stumbled across this delicious looking recipe the other night…….hope you enjoy:


  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter, softened ½ cup sugar

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 4 eggs, at room temperature & beaten

  • Juice and Zest of 2 lemons

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 cups flour, sifted

  • 3 tsp baking powder

  • ¼ tsp baking soda

  • ½ tsp ground cardamom

  • 1 pinch of salt

  • For the drizzle

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 1 Tbsp Freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 2 Tbsp melted butter


  1. Pre heat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream the butter, sugar and honey together until light and fluffy.

  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, until well combined.

  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom and salt and set aside.

  5. Add the lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla extract to the bowl of your stand mixer and then fold in the flour mixture until just combined and there is no flour remaining (do not overmix). Transfer to a greased loaf pan and bake for about 40 minutes or until golden brown and a wooden skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

  6. For the drizzle: Combine the honey, butter, and lemon juice in a small saucepan set over medium-low heat. Heat until the butter is melted and stir until smooth.

  7. Poke your cake with a wooden skewer and make sure the skewer goes almost to the bottom of the cake and create a lot of small holes and then pour the drizzle syrup over the hot cake. Allow to cool in the loaf pan before slicing and serving. Dust with icing sugar just before serving.
