So you seen Week 1 of the Great British Bake Off last night? What a great first week. Who is your favourite so far? Ours has to be Jane closely followed by Andrew. Andrew is from Northern Ireland so we’re excited to have Northern Ireland represented. (Waves cake shaped flag!).
With the nation being whipped into a baking frenzy (yes we have seen our Twitter feed, it almost exploded last night with people talking about and hashtagging just about everything to do with baking. #WeLoveCake.
The Great British Save Off Week 1
We teamed up with the best people possible, VoucherBox to compare supermarket prices for ingredients for the key recipe of Week 1. The Lemon Drizzle! We’ve all been there, we see a great recipe and then start adding up the cost of ingredients. Lets face it, most of us are on a budget. That includes us. We wish someone would give us a price comparison for everything we bought! Would that be great.
Mary Berry’s Lemon Drizzle Cake Recipe
That brings Sainsbury’s on top for this weeks price comparison. Lets see who wins next weeks price war!
Preheat the oven to 180ºC, gas 4.
Beat together the eggs, flour, caster sugar, butter, baking powder and lemon zest until smooth in a large mixing bowl and turn into the prepared tin.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 35 mins, or until golden brown, shrinking away from the sides of the tin and springy to the touch.
While the cake is still warm, make the lemon drizzle topping. Mix together the sugar and lemon juice, and pour over the warm cake.
Leave to cool a little and loosen the sides of the cake, then lift the cake out of the tin.
