Recipe – Lemon & raisin loaf cake

One of my favourite flavours for a dessert (or anything sweet really) is lemon, and I really love it in this cake as it makes it so moist. I think lemon & raisin go really well together and of course having raisins in a cake makes it healthy, right?…

Ingredients (serves 6-8)

  • 150g butter
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 150g self raising flour (plus a little extra)
  • 3 eggs
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 200g raisins

  • Preheat oven to gas 5 / 375F / 190C, and grease & line the bottom of loaf tin.
  • Mix together the butter and sugar until smooth & creamy. 
  • Add the flour & the eggs bit by bit and mix well.
  • Add the lemon juice & zest and mix until well combined.
  • (If you’re lazy like me you could just chuck all of the above in a stand mixer at once).
  • In a separate mixing bowl, coat the raisins with the extra flour, this will stop them from sinking to the bottom of the cake.
  • Mix the raisins into the cake mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into a loaf tin then bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool, or serve warm.
  • Enjoy!

  1. Love the sound of lemon with raisins, like you I'm obsessed with all things lemony. My Dad makes a lemon yoghurt cake that is amazing! Thanks for linking up to #tastytuesdays
