Our best lemon cake recipes

Baking and eating cakes is one of life’s great pleasures and we have loads of lovely recipes to share with you on goodtoknow. To help you get started we have collected together the very best of our favourite lemon cake recipes.

By adding lots of lovely sherbety lemon you can transform a classic sponge into a zingy showstopper. In this collection we have started with a traditional lemon drizzle and worked our way through the possible variations – things like tray bakes with crunchy poppy seeds, sponges infused with lemongrass and cupcakes topped with white chocolate – the options are endless.

Any citrus fruit works well to cut through a rich buttery sponge. Try switching the lemon in these recipes for lime, orange or grapefruit if you fancy a change. 

Why not try mastering the basic lemon drizzle cake and then putting your own twist on it using our other recipes as inspiration. Try baking your mixture as a tray bake, sandwich cake or cupcakes and give them to friends and family as gifts.

What is your favourite way to ice and serve a lemon cake?
