Starbucks Challenge 3.0: Lemon Drizzle Cake


So girls and boys, the Starbucks challenge continues! After the first and second challenge well conquered, here comes the third!! This time I am making the lemon drizzle cake with only 7 ingredients!

The challenge is to bake cakes sold by Starbucks with much less ingredients but more flavour! My first challenge was to bake a raspberry swirl pound cake.

1 Cake

Wie heißt das denn auf Deutsch?
Cooking Converter / Umrechnungstabelle

225 gr granulated sugar

225 gr butter

50 ml buttermilk

4 large eggs

275 gr flour

2 teaspoon of baking soda

2 lemon zest (the lemons won’t go to waste, we will need them for the frosting)

For the frosting

juice of 2 lemons

150 gr icing sugar


Preheat the oven to 180 degree C / 350 F.

Beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Mix in the eggs, one at a time. Then fold in the buttermilk and the lemon zest.

Sift the flour and the baking soda into a bowl. Add the flour mix slowly into the egg mix. Beat them together.

Cover a cake tin with greaseproof paper. Pour the batter into the cake tin.

Bake for 45 Minutes then cool in the cake tin for 15 minutes. Mix the frosting ingredients together and pour it on the cake.

Guten Hunger!
