Elderflower Drizzle Cake

IMG_5173 - Copy

I have been busy making elderflower cordial, (this recipe is in the drink section of my website). Elderflower cordial is a lovely summer time refreshing drink and when added to cake it give a light subtle floral flavour.

I used 100ml of cordial, this gives a light flavour. This is a beautifully moist cake with a subtle hint of elderflower.

You Will Need:

  • 170g Butter
  • 170g Caster Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 100ml Elderflower Cordial
  • 170g Self Raising Flour (sifted)

For the Drizzle:

  • 50ml Elderflower Cordial
  • 2 tbsp Granulated Sugar

Method:

  • Grease and line a 1lb loaf tin.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together, until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time beating well between each addition.
  • Add the elderflower cordial.
  • Fold until the flour is totally incorporated.
  • Spoon the mixture into your prepared tin and bake for 35-45 mins at 170degrees.
  • Meanwhile mix the drizzle ingredients together.
  • As soon as the cake is baked and out the oven pour the drizzle over and allow to soak in while the cake is still in the tin.
  • This drizzle will make a lovely crunchy topping.
  • When cooled turnout and serve.
