Welcome to my new follower Pauline.
Yesterday whilst I was roasting the chicken for the curry I decided to make a lemon thyme drizzle cake, when I went out to get the lemon thyme I was annoyed with myself as I had just cut it right back and repotted it, but all was not lost I had some lemon balm and so I used that instead.
Lemon Thyme or Lemon Balm Drizzle Cake
170g self raising flour
2 x large eggs
zest and juice of 1 small lemon
2 x tablespoons of lemon thyme leaves or lemon balm finely chopped
I just used to all in one method, put it all in the mixer together.
Bake at 170 c for around 40 - 45 mins.
For the lemon icing
140g icing sugar mixed with the juice of a small lemon.
After it has been out of the oven for five minutes, liberally spread the icing over the top, it is a thin icing so it will spread and run down the sides.
Today I spent £1.99
£1.00 on some rhubarb from the car boot sale, and some cream 99p.
Tea was a salad.
Followed by a yummy crumble, with custard and cream.
I have worked the crumble off already, we went to the car boot this morning, then I planted some, petunias, nasturtiums, lobelia, livingstone daisies, hollyhocks, busy lizzie and alyssum. Followed by a weeding session, and then I went for a walk.
