When you love lemons, you make lemon cake! Lemon drizzle cake is a classic teatime treat and it is one of
the Queen‘s favourites. And former royal chef
Darren McGrady has revealed how to make the cake in his latest YouTube video.
There are lots of slightly different versions of lemon drizzle cake. Darren shared the recipe that he used to prepare for Her Majesty. The deliciously soft and moist cake slightly differs from some recipes because it has a double glaze!
Typically, the former royal chef would bake the lemon drizzle cake on a Friday in the Buckingham Palace kitchens. Then it would be packed up to be taken to
Windsor Castle. The dessert would get the first glaze when it was baked then the second one would be added at Windsor before royal tea.
The scrumptious lemon drizzle cake might have been suitable for royal tea, but it’s an easy bake and would be just as suited for a spring meal or even
Easter. The cake has a simple method and a lot of the ingredients are things people likely already have at home.
Darren has previously shared recipes for some of the
Royal Family‘s favourites including the
banana flan that was one of Prince Harry and Prince William‘s most cherished childhood treats.
