Floral and zesty can make a winning combination. Just see this dreamy drizzle cake for serious baking inspiration with lime and lavender.

It’s made using Masons Lavender Edition Gin which features a soft juniper and lavender mix complete with fresh lime and coriander notes for a sweet, subtle flavour and a slightly dry finish.

It makes for a delicious drizzle topping, that pairs perfectly with slices of lime on top.

Masons Lime and Lavender Drizzle Cake

Ingredients:

  • 225g unsalted butter
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • Finely grated zest 1 lime

For the Drizzle Topping:

Method:

  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.
  2. Beat together 225g softened unsalted butter and 225g caster sugar until pale and creamy, then add 4 eggs, one at a time, slowly mixing through.
  3. Sift in 225g self-raising flour, then add the finely grated zest of 1 lime and mix until well combined.
  4. Line a loaf tin (8 x 21cm) with greaseproof paper, then spoon in the mixture and level the top with a spoon.
  5. Bake for 45-50 mins until a thin skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  6. While the cake is cooling in its tin, mix together the juice of 1 lime, 15ml of Masons Lavender Edition and 100g of icing sugar.
  7. Prick the warm cake all over with a skewer or fork, then pour over the drizzle – the juice will sink in and the sugar will form a lovely, crisp topping.
  8. Leave in the tin until completely cool, then remove and serve. Will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days, or freeze for up to 1 month.
