  • Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy and pale. Add the eggs, beating well. Fold in the milk, then add the flour.
  • Fold in the zest and spoon the mixture into the prepared cake tin. Place in the oven for just under 1 hour, or until a skewer comes out clean.
  • Meanwhile, mix the lemon juice and lime juice with the sugar. Stir well, then leave somewhere warm and dry (perhaps next to the oven).
  • Once the cake is out of the oven, stir the drizzle well. Prick the cake in several places, and pour the drizzle over the cake.
