d) Gently stir until fully combined, 2-3 mins.

Ready, Steady, Bake

a) Divide the lemon cake mixture between your lined loaf tins and pop onto the middle shelf of your oven until risen and golden, 27-30 mins, or until a rounded knife inserted in the centre comes out clean. TIP: A few crumbs are okay!

Bring on the the Lemon Syrup

a) Meanwhile,combine in a small saucepan the lemon juice and caster sugar.

b) Stir on medium heat until the sugar is dissolved, 2-3 mins.

Soak It Up

a) Once baked, remove the cakes from the oven, then, using a skewer (or another pointy utensil), poke 15-20 holes in the top of each loaf.

b) Gently spoon the lemon syrup over each loaf cake and allow it to soak in.

c) Allow the cakes to cool for 10 mins before removing from the tins, then allow to cool completely.

Hello Pistachio

Decorate and Serve

a) Carefully sprinkle the pistachios in a line down the centre of each loaf to finish.
