Say I love you with cake! Lemon Blueberry Drizzle Cake

Hello guys,

Valentines day is not far away – I mean you probably have noticed that shops have been taken over by angry invasions of red love hearts and if you are not in a relationship you suddenly feel a need to think of a reason why not.

Roses and cake

Andy and I do not really do Valentines day, we are more pancake day people ourselves but we do enjoy the food aspect and swap cards. If you are struggling to think of what to get your lover for V day or want to wallow in front of Netflix, tinder and some food then this is the recipe for you!

It’s a really easy lemon blueberry drizzle cake! It’s very moist…. and yummy!

The heart shape mold is from amazon – link here
