St Clement's Drizzle Cake

This month’s recipe is a traditional British favourite and a cake you will find in most tea rooms over Britian, St Clement’s Drizzle Cake. I can only presume that the name of this cake originates from the poem about execution turned nursery rhyme Oranges and Lemons! I remember playing the singing game associated with this nursery rhyme in Primary school. Only recently did I realise its origins but maybe the lines “Here comes a Chopper to Chop off your Head, Chip chop chip chop - the Last Man's Dead”, should have given it away! This quick cake recipe produces a very light and moist sponge that is bursting with those wonderful citrusy flavours soaked through, finished with a crunchy sugary top. The perfect refreshing afternoon teatime cake!

*If you have any queries or questions, please leave a comment under the recipe and we will endeavour to reply to you as soon as possible.*
