So. There was no real reason for me to make these other than I wanted something sweet and had a lot of lemons laying about and I mean what’s not to love about lemon drizzle cake? mmmmm
This was originally meant to be a lemon and lime muffin recipe but when the cakies came out of the oven their intention to be cupcakes was clear so I thought “why fight it?”. These were very tasty and simple cakes that really cheered me up on a particularly chilly “Spring” day with their fresh lemony limeness!
