Eggless Lemon Drizzle Mini Loaf Cakes



Last week was the start of the Great British Bake off Series 7. I am a huge fan of this awesome show and really enjoy watching all the challenges and creations that the participants partake. I love the docile Mary Berry and the candid Paul Hollywood with his piercing blue eyes that are enough to give you the shakes!!! I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to make some bread with Paul at a recent bloggers event.You can read all about it here .

On last weeks GBBO episode we saw bakers bake a Drizzle cake, make Jaffa cakes and create a show stopper of a Genoise cake with a mirror glaze. I was totally inspired by the drizzle cakes and so here I am sharing my bake: Eggless Lemon Drizzle mini loaf cakes.

I used the Ninja Kitchen System with Nutri Ninja to whisk up my cake mix. The Ninja®Complete Kitchen System with Nutri Ninja® is a power machine that incorporates three appliances, a food processor, high speed blender and a nutrient extractor. Its 1,500 watt of power  is perfect for all kitchen tasks such as mixing, blending, kneading,chopping and whipping.

I am delighted to have this addition to my kitchen as its going to be very handy whilst I create some exciting challenges inspired by the GBBO.


I am also excited to feature the Paul Hollywood bakeware by Kitchen Craft during my GBBO posts. The bakeware is made from extra thick carbon steel which won't warp during baking and will give all your cakes an even bake.The bakeware is dishwasher,fridge and freezer safe. Its100% PFOA, PTFE and BPA-free and comes with  a 20 year guarantee (5 year non stick guarantee). The range is available in most cookware shops.


I was sent the The Ninja®Complete Kitchen System with Nutri Ninja® and the Paul Hollywood bakeware to review in the simplyfood kitchens.

I love the classic lemon drizzle cake, you can also check out some other drizzle cakes below:

  10. Oh man! This totally looks like something I will make in my kitchen! Love lemon, love cakes! Just a question - can I replace the apple cider vinegar with something else if i don't have that? What would you recommend?

    1. The vinegar reacts with the bicarbonate to add raising to the cake so it is not dense. You can use white wine vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar or maybe a tablespoon of natural yoghurt in its place. Alternatively just add an egg if you eat eggs.

  11. These look wonderful, superb that they are smaller too. There are only two of use and definitely struggle with a whole loaf like this baked in a loaf tin, at least with this I can freeze what is left.

  21. I love that you've used a lot of natural and healthy ingredients in these lemon cakes. Personally I do eat eggs and they're pretty important to me as a source of nutrients, but I don't eat flour so you've inspired me to make a nice almond flour lemon drizzle cake!
