Oranges and Lemons…

… say the bells of St. Clement’s

A sunny summery cake for a sunny summery day. This One Bowl Citrus Cake is my go to recipe for something that I can throw together easily, that everybody likes, and that will cope with being baked in whatever tin I have handy. (So far loaf tin, round tin, and cupcakes all work).

It should have a yummy drizzle on it, but as soon as I put that on it all got eaten up, so this is a drizzle-less version!
