Lime Drizzle Cake (GF, LF, SF)

We love lemon drizzle cake in our house, we have it fairly often so I thought if mix things up a little bit and make a gluten, lactose and sugar free lime drizzle cake. 


          4 eggs

          225g softened lacto free butter

         150g honey

         250g gluten free self raising flour

         Juice and zest of 1 lime

         1 teaspoon of xantham gum powder


         Beat the butter until soft and fluffy. 

         Add the honey and eggs and beat again. 

         Add the flour and xantham gum powder gradually whilst beating. 

         Add lime juice and zest and mix through. 

          Pour the batter into a greased and lined tin and bake at gas mark 4 for approximately 40 minutes or until cooked through, check with a skewer. 

Ingredients for lime drizzle:

           Juice of 1 lime

           2 tablespoons of honey


           Whilst the cake is cooking put the honey and lime juice into a saucepan and heat gently to combine. 

As soon as the cake is cooked poke holes throughout the sponge with the skewer and pour you lime drizzle over the sponge. Allow to cool for 10 minutes them take out of the tin and place on a cooling rack. 

It was lovely and made a change fro
 our usual cake.
