This gluten-free lemon drizzle cake is super moist and sublimely delicious, best enjoyed with a nice cup of tea.

The lemon zest infused sponge can be made with gluten-free flour or ground almonds. The gaze is made with icing sugar and lemon juice for an extra lemon flavour, simply drizzle over the loaf once cooled. Decorate how you like, we have topped it off with lemon slices and some beautiful edible flowers.

To make it dairy-free simply swap the butter for margarine
