Lemon drizzle cake made in Thermomix


Units Scale
  • 2 lemons, thin peelings of skin and juice (approx. 80 g)
  • 300 g caster sugar
  • 175 g unsalted butter, soft
  • 3 large eggs
  • 175 g self-raising flour
  • 20 g milk


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line a loaf tin (900 g/2 lb) with baking paper.
  2. Place lemon peel and 50 g sugar in mixing bowl then grate 10 sec/speed 10.
  3. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula then grate again 10 sec/speed 10. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula.

  6. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula then mix again 15 sec/speed 5.
  7. Transfer batter to prepared tin and bake for 45-50 minutes (180°C) until a skewer inserted in centre comes out clean (see tip). Meanwhile, clean mixing bowl.
  8. Leave cake to rest for 10 minutes in tin while preparing lemon drizzle.
  9. Place remaining 125 g sugar and lemon juice in mixing bowl then grind 8 sec/speed 8. (I tend to just mix by hand in a little bowl rather than dirty another mixing bowl
  10. While cake is still warm, prick deeply with a skewer. Remove from tin and transfer to a plate then pour glaze over the top allowing it to seep in and run down sides.
  11. Leave to cool completely before cutting in slices to serve.


You can manually mix the sugar and lemon juice for the last stage
