Best ever drizzle cakes for rainy days

April is notorious for its showers, but the only kind of drizzle that we're interested in is when it's associated with cake. And then we are ALL ears.

What could be more perfect than a deliciously sticky, sweet syrup poured all over a lovely sponge? We love that slightly crunchy sugary top then the moist, fruity cake.

From moreish ginger to classic lemon, here are some of our favourite teatime classics to get your teeth into. 

For orange fans

Orange semolina cake

This gorgeously moist semolina cake is covered in a lovely, orangey syrup. And it tastes even more amazing the next day! 

For ginger lovers

This spicy, gooey ginger cake sponge is perfectly finished with a covering of syrup and treacle drizzle.

For classic connoisseurs

Lime and lemon drizzle cake

Rosemary drizzle cake

This lemon and rosemary drizzle cake recipe has a lovely balance of citrus and herby flavours.

Lemon and saffron drizzle cake

This gorgeous classic lemon drizzle cake has a new level of flavour added thanks to a good sprinkling of saffron and rosemary. 

For vegetable cake fans

 Sweet potato and ginger cake 

We’ve used three different forms of ginger – ground, crystallised and stem – which adds extra texture to this moist sweet potato and ginger cake as well as giving it a deliciously intense, tangy taste.
