Lemon drizzle cake is a traditional British cake. Sweet and fluffy, but tart and zingy, the first was – according to some reports – made only in 1967.
But that’s not all. “Then I put a sort of fondant on the stop as well, which again has more lemon juice in it,” Sophie said.
“So that’s it, it’s all about infusing the sauce, rather than trying to get too much flavour into the sponge.”
Sophie now makes showstopping luxury cakes with her company Sophie Faldo Couture Cakes.
She recently detailed the kitchen baking essentials that make her cakes so good.
Bake Off judge Prue Leith recently shared a ginger biscuit recipe.
The GBBO experts slightly spicy biscuits are sure to be a lovely autumn treat.
“These ginger biscuits provide the perfect opportunity for honing your icing skills,” Prue explains.
The recipe serves 12 and isn’t for a novice baker.
