Mary Berry's Lemon Drizzle Traybake

I recently bought a second hand kenwood chef after seeing it on gumtree. It is about 30 years old, but had the liquidizer, mincer and the usual dough hook, k-blade and whisk attachments too, it even had a stainless steel bowl which instantly drew me to thinking about meringues and pastry!

I have wanted one of these for a long time, but the only problem is that my kitchen is tiny and it will have to live on the table in the living room - I must make a cover for it! Everything works fine and after blending some soup and making a great pizza dough, I thought it was only right to make a cake.

I am on a long journey to reach a healthy weight, but my OH is able to eat pretty much anything and not put on an ounce. He takes a piece to work each day (packed lunch) and I found this lemon drizzle cake recipe in one of the many books in my expanding cook book collection. I thought it would keep well because of the syrup poured on it while it was still warm. It is an all in one mix and took minutes to put together and the resulting cake is moist and delicious with a crunchy sugar top.Lemon Drizzle Traybake

Lemon Drizzle is one of my favourites. I know all about small kitchens and am thinking about expanding into my hall way by buying a 50s kitchen cupboard/dresser.

Good luck on your weight loss (though that cake will make it much tougher, heh heh)! I'm so excited/jealous for your new mixer!
