Second Nigella's Lemon Syrup Loaf Cake. Have even taken to last min picnics and trips hot from the oven still in the tin, soaking up the lemon syrup. Makes the car smell amazing and is cool and slices beautifully when we get round to eating it.
This recipe is so good that the chair of the local WI asked me for the recipe so here goes:
