Pre-heat the oven to 180°c and grease a standard loaf tin.
For the cake, combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix
until everything is well combined and the mixture is thick and creamy.
Transfer the batter to the cake tin and smooth out the top.
Bake the cake for 20-25 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tin before
removing it and allowing to cool completely on a wire rack.
Meanwhile, make the lemon syrup by bringing the ingredients to the boil
in a small saucepan. With a skewer, poke holes into the cake and carefully
spoon the hot syrup over the cake, allow to cool down completely.
Make the lemon glaze by whisking the lemon juice teaspoon by teaspoon
into the icing sugar. You want the glaze to be quite thick.
the cake has cooled completely, drizzle over the lemon glaze.
