    You have a lovely n delicious looking blog… Tried the lemon drizzle cake the batter was so very much like the egg one. But my cake didnt rise much and also was falling apart. It was super soft in texture but not that airy and well sliced as yours. Please help… TIA

    1. I am re-doing this cake today as I have been having trouble with this recipe since I switched ovens. I have added in 1/3 cup cornstarch.
