Ingredients

  • 200 g Golden Syrup
  • 100 g Butter
  • 100 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 150 ml Milk
  • 200 g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 Lemon zest only
  • 3 tablespoon Golden Syrup

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 160°c (140 fan/ 325F/ Gas 3) and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking parchment.
  • Place the golden syrup, butter and caster sugar in a pan and melt on a low heat. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly.
  • In a small jug, whisk together the egg and milk and then beat it into the cooled syrup mixture.
  • Now beat in the flour and lemon zest. You may want to use a whisk to make sure the batter is as smooth as possible (don't worry if a few small lumps remain).
  • Pour the batter into the tin and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour (until a skewer comes out clean). Immediately brush with the extra golden syrup and leave to cool.
