I made my own day finding this recipe for a gin and tonic cake!

I skipped to the bottom of this article to read the recipe and there’s 250ml of gin in the cake…I was rather happy about that!
I love baking so I’m very excited to try this one out…

THE INGREDIENTS
4 eggs, weighed in their shells
equal weight of:
butter
caster sugar
self-raising flour
2 lemons
8-10 shots of your favourite gin
dash tonic water (optional)
150g granulated sugar

THE RECIPE
Ensure that all your ingredients are at room temperature, and preheat the oven to 180C. Weigh your eggs in their shells, and make a note of the exact weight. Weigh out this much butter and caster sugar, and cream together until light, fluffy and pale. Crack in the eggs, and beat until combined. Sieve in the flour, mix again, then grate in the zest of both lemons. Stir through the juice of 1 lemon and 3-4 shots of gin, then pour into a lined 1kg loaf tin. Bake in the centre of the oven for 45 minutes, or until the cake passes the knife test.

Remove from the oven, and set aside while you make the drizzle. combine the sugar, gin, tonic and remaining lemon in a bowl. Prick the surface of the cake with a fork, then poor over the drizzle.
