Nigella's Lemon Syrup Loaf Cake from How to Be a Domestic Goddess. It's amazing, very easy, and keeps for a week (and can be frozen). Let me know if you can't find the recipe on her website.

Mary Berrys traybake lemon drizzle is easy to make and tastes lovely

All lemon drizzle cake is fine with me! Even better if I can snigger at a fist mark on the top.

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.

I just made the Felicity Cloake guardian one above and it's really delicious. And I'm a terrible baker... It does have some ground almonds in though so not suitable if you need nut free
