A Super Lemon Drizzle Cake Tip

You probably know how to make a good lemon drizzle cake, so I’m sure you’d love to know how to make a great lemon drizzle cake.

Well, what you need to do is add a secret ingredient to make your lemon drizzle cake the envy of your coffee mornings or dinner parties. What is this secret ingredient? Italian Limoncello liqueur! That is the tip I got from Campania Food and Wine, importers for fine Italian foods from Italy’s Capania region.

What you need to do, Campania Food and Wine told me via a not so secret tweet, is to replace the milk in your lemon drizzle cake recipe with Limoncello. Bobs your uncle – you’ll have the lemoniest lemon drizzle cake ever! And, as an added bonus, Luigi Di Caprio of Campania Food and Wine tells me that with limoncello the cake will be more moist too.

Of course you’ll need some good Italian limoncello and Campania Food and Wine can help seeing as they sell Gioia Luisa Limoncello Di Sorrento.
