Elderflower loaf
The essence of Summer is in this simple elderflower loaf.

For the loaf cake base

175g softened butter, plus extra for greasing

175g golden caster sugar

3 eggs

140g self-raising flour

85g ground almonds

½ tsp baking powder

100ml milk

For the drizzle

4 tbsp elderflower cordial

4 tbsp white or golden granulated sugar

Preheat the oven to 160°C / 325°F / Gas mark 3.

Grease and line a 900g loaf tin with a long strip of baking parchment and set aside.

Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs, flour, almonds, baking powder and milk until smooth.

Pour into the tin and bake for 45-50 minutes until golden, risen and a skewer poked in the centre comes out clean.

Prick it all over with a skewer.

Mix together the cordial and extra sugar, then pour all over the cake.

Cool in the tin, then carefully lift out to slice.
