Lemon Drizzle Cake

My grans down this weekend so my mum asked me to make a lemon drizzle cake for them to have with a cup of tea and found a recipe in my 'Great British Book of Baking'.

We didn't have a round tin the right size so I used a square silicone one we have instead which is (kind of) fun.  When I pricked the sponge to drizzle the sugar and lemon syrup over it, you could really smell the lemon zest in the sponge.  Plus the syrup has given it a lovely sugary finish.

Obviously I've already tried it; the sponge is light and soft and the syrup adds a stronger flavour and some sugary crunch.
