Sunday Bakes! Don't Worry About The Flour With This Lemon Drizzle Cake


Lemon Drizzle Cake - SLOAN! Magazine

Hey Lovelies, 

If like me you have had to go to the shops for the essential items, you will have seen that there is no flour. None at all. This has caused a lot of problems for many, especially with so many of us turning to baking the items we can’t get in shops or online.

This got me thinking about today’s Sunday Bake. I wanted to provide you all with a recipe that wouldn’t need it. And luckily, I found one. This is a great bake that the whole family can join in with or that you can enjoy with yourself. The more the merrier.

Get those aprons on and get baking this classic Lemon Drizzle cake lovelies…
