Morrison's Lemon Drizzle Loaf

Would you believe that the tastiest cake I have ever made only cost 90p thanks to Morrisons Savers? I know!! I found it hard to believe too at first, until I bought all the ingredients from my local Morrisons and laid them out in front of me. Even the recipe for this cake, Lemon Drizzle Loaf Cake was supplied by Morrisons. We bought eggs, cake mix, a lemon and a jar of lemon curd.

Ok, so my food photography needs some work but I can happily report that it tasted fantastic and it even had the man who is a baker by trade reporting back how yummy it tasted. Not even he could believe I had made it using products from Morrisons Savers range. Making a cake really can be a cheap activity for you to do with your little ones, I find that Oli appreciates food more if he's had a input into the making of it. Find the recipe for this Lemon Drizzle Loaf below...
