Mango and Lime Drizzle Cake – GBBO

Mango and Lime Drizzle Cake

You know it’s definitely your birthday when it coincides with the new series of the Great British Bake Off. Not quite so great when you’re out celebrating with family and forget to set it to record.

When I found out the three challenges, it seemed it had to be Drizzle Cake.
I wanted to do something special, it is my birthday week after all, and after trying to figure out whether I could create a ‘thing’ from Prosecco Drizzle Cake, I decided to play it safe.
I thought about the flavours I’m loving lately. Coffee obviously. And then there’s the Mango and Lime which I keep buying from Tesco, Pret a Manger and Eat.
It was worth a try.
Actually it was worth two tries.
But second attempt was there. Scrummy.

    You add the lime zest twice and the juice not at all. Should step eight mix the sugar and lime juice, instead of sugar and lime zest?
