Lemon & Elderflower Drizzle Cake

With the Royal Wedding just days away this cake uses the same flavours as Prince Harry and Meghan’s Wedding Cake. I’m really looking forward to seeing pictures of their non-traditional choice of Wedding Cake  

It is easy to make using the all-in-one method and only takes a few minutes to prepare before baking in the pre-heated oven. 

Do share your photos if you try out the recipe. 

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes



  • 225 G SR Flour
  • 225 G Butter
  • 225 G Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 Lemons


  • 100 ML Elderflower Cordial
  • Lemon Juice
  • 100 G Sugar

Flowers for decoration


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees or 170 fan. 

  2. Line a large loaf tin. 

  3. Measure flour, butter, sugar and eggs into a bowl. 

  4. Zest both lemons and add to the bowl. (I always wash the lemon before zesting). 

  5. Mix together into a smooth batter and fill the loaf tin with the batter. 

  6. Bake for approximately 55 minutes until a skewer comes out clean from the centre of the cake. 

  7. Allow to cool for a few minutes then prick holes all over the cake

  8. Mix together the cordial and juice to taste to your preference. The Elderflower is quite subtle so you don’t want to overwhelm with too much lemon!

  9. Add to the sugar to make a syrup and pour all over the cake. 

  10. Allow to cool completely in the tin and add flowers for decoration.  You can use real flowers but do make sure they are edible and safe to eat.
