Gluten Free Lemon Drizzle Cake

 

 

Tangy and zesty this lemon loaf is a sure fire winner for families and guests alike! You can always jazz it up a little by baking it in a heart or fancy shape cake mould but to be honest, I think it looks just as tasty as a loaf!

For the Icing:

* Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and slowly add the lemon juice until it becomes quite thick

 

For the Lemon Crunch
