Lemon drizzle cake

We love nothing more than a zesty lemon dessert. These pudding, cake and cookie recipes make the most of this light, citrus flavour in simple sweet treats.A grating of lemon zest or a swirl of lemon curd can instantly lift any dessert and take it from bland to brilliantly fresh in a second. Don't overlook that bag of lemons in your fridge or fruit bowl, make them into something special and satisfy your citrus cravings.
