    Really easy to make, made it into a slab cake and sliced it into squares. Very good, decreased the cooking time to 30 mins as the cake was not so deep.

    Seriously good cake! Not too sweet. I didn't add all the syrup because I was worried it would be too sweet for me, so I put about half in a little jug for people to add more if they wished. Hardly anyone did, and they raved about it! I also added more lemon zest to start with. This will be my go to recipe when I want a treat/ take a sweet plate! Thanks for sharing.
