Mojito drizzle loaf cake.

Complete and utter photography fail here. Too busy eating the cake to take any photos. It was delicious so I’ll make it again and then I’ll update the post.Sorry!

Mojito loaf cake.

Ingredients.

3 large eggs

200g butter

200g caster sugar

200g self raising flour

grated zest of a lime

4 sprigs of mint, leaves stripped and finely chopped

Juice of 1 lime made up to 50 ml with white rum.

Drizzle

2 tbsp lime juice

2 tbsp white rum

4 tbsp granulated sugar

Icing

1 cup icing sugar

Enough white rum or lime juice to make icing thick as double cream

How to….

  • Preheat the oven to 180c
  • Line a loaf tin with parchment or a loaf tin liner.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in an egg at a time, add a spoon of flour with each egg to prevent the mixture splitting.
  • Fold in the flour, lime zest and the chopped mint.
  • Stir in the rum and lime juice.
  • Scrape out of the bowl into the loaf tin.
  • Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean from the cake.
  • Mix together the drizzle and pour over the cooked cake as it is cooling in the tin.
  • Once completely cool, make up the icing. Make sure the top of the cake is covered,if the icing falls down the sides, all the better.
