It is recipe day on the blog and today I am sharing with your some super delicious little mini loaves from Gillian of Crumbs of Comfort Cake Design.
I can see these perfect little bites being served as part of easter weekend treats – they can made gluten and dairy free by substituting flours for gluten free varieties, as well as butter and milk which can be changed to dairy free spread or rice milk!

125 g butter
1 tablespoon lemon zest
140g self-raising flour

Cream butter, sugar and rind until pale. Add in eggs. beating well.
Fold in sifted flours alternately with milk.
Spread mixture into cake tin. Bake for 20-25 minutes (35-40 minutes for 20cm ) or until cooked.
Prick hot cake, still in tin, several times with a skewer. Gently spoon syrup over cake.
