Method Of Gluten-free lemon drizzle cake

1. Preheat the oven to 180 ° C / gas mark 4. Line a bread pan with parchment paper
2. Beat the butter and sugar together until they are pale and creamy. This should take a few minutes in a stand mixer
3. Break the eggs in the blender bowl and mix to incorporate
4. Stir in the flour and lemon zest of the two lemons and mix until they are incorporated. Transfer the mixture to the bread pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted in the center of the cake.
5. Meanwhile, pour the lemon juice into a small bowl and stir in the icing sugar to create a sweet lemon syrup. If using, add thyme leaves to the syrup.

7. When the cake has cooled, remove from the pan and drizzle with any remaining syrup and sprinkle with thyme leaves.
