Sugar free, Gluten Free, Nut Free, Soya Free Lemon Drizzle Cake

So I wanted to see if it was possible to make a yummy refined sugar free lemon drizzle cake.  I haven't iced this one as I did the last one


I used honey in place of sugar for the cake, and then xylitol for the lemon drizzle and it's gone down a storm, so here's my recipe:

Ingredients for the cake:

                 225g soft butter

                 150g honey

                 4 medium eggs

                 225g Gluten Free self raising flour

                 Juice of 1 lemon


               Pre-heat your oven to gas mark 4.

               Put your butter, honey and eggs into a large bowl, or mixer and beat well.

               Add the GF SR flour and continue to beat.

               Add the juice of 1 lemon, beat and then pour the mixture into a greased and lined cake tin.

               Bake for approximately 45 mins or until a skewer comes out clean and your cake is brown and coming away from the edges of the tin.

Ingredients for lemon drizzle:

                      Juice of 1 lemon

                      50g xylitol


              When your cake has 5 mins left to cook, put the juice of 1 lemon and the xylitol into a saucepan and heat until the xylitol has dissolved.

              Take your cake out of the oven, prick all over with a skewer and pour the hot drizzle over your cake. 

              Allow to cool for about 10 mins in the tin, then turn out onto a wire rack.
