    I put the batter into individual cupcake cases and they turned out beautifully. When they were done I pricked all the cakes with a skewer and then poured the lemon sauce over them. They turned out so lemony and so moist. Everyone loved them. Perfect recipe!

    the cake was light and airy, it was easy to make for someone who isn’t a pro chef. the lemon didn’t overpower the sweet cake. it was so nice we had to take it away from my dad 🤣

    Wonderful. I did half of the cake with the lemon drizzle and the other half without to see which texture I prefer. The one without was more fluffy inside and the one with the drizzle was a lot more of a wet consistency. Everyone loved it.
