  • Lemon meringue drizzle cake is bursting with zesty flavour.

    Our lemon meringue drizzle cake has a moist sponge base, topped with lemon curd and crumbled meringue pieces. This recipe is based on our top-rated lemon drizzle cake – but, we’ve added extra orange zest to the mixture for an intense citrus flavour. When baked, decorate with lemon curd, mini meringues, and fruit zest.

    Ingredients

    • 175g caster sugar
    • 175g self-raising flour
    • 175g softened butter
    • 3/4 level tsp baking powder
    • 3 eggs
    • zest from 1 lemon
    • zest from 1 orange
    • To decorate:
    • 2tbsp lemon curd
    • 3 mini meringue shells, roughly crumbled
    • 3 lemon sherbets, chopped
    • few pieces of candied lemon peel

    Method

    • Make our lemon drizzle cake to step 2, but add the juice and rind of one extra orange.

    • Once the cake has cooled, drizzle over a little of the lemon curd then scatter over the crumbled meringue, lemon sherbet pieces and the candied peel.

    • Drizzle over the rest of the lemon curd. Slice to serve.
