LEMON DRIZZLE TRAY BAKE

 

INGREDIENTS

 

225g (8oz) softened butter

 

225g (8oz) caster sugar

 

275g (10oz) self-raising flour

 

2 level teaspoons baking powder

 

4 large eggs

 

4 tablespoons milk

 

Finely grated rind of 2 lemons (unwaxed)

 

For the Crunchy topping

 

175g (6oz) granulated sugar

 

Juice of 2 lemons

 

METHOD

1.Preheat the oven to160C/ Fan 140C/ Gas 3. Grease a 30x23cm (12x9”) approx. tray or roasting tin then line the base with baking parchment.

 

2.Measure all the ingredients for the traybake into a large bowl and beat until well blended. Turn the mixture into the prepared tin and level the top gently with the back of a spatula.

 

3.Bake in the pre-heated oven for 35-40 mins or until the cake has shrunk from the sides of the tin and springs back when pressed in the centre with fingertips. Leave to cool in the tin for a few minutes then turn out, then carefully peel off the parchment and finish cooling on a wire rack. Stand the wire rack on a tray to catch any drips of the topping.

 

4.To make the crunchy topping, mix the granulated sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl to give a runny consistency. Spoon this mixture evenly over the traybake while it is still a little warm. Cut into 30 squares approx. when cold.

 

Display 12 squares on a plate or tray for judging, cover with cling film.
