Mini Cherry and Lemon Drizzle Cakes (h)

Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4. Lightly brush 18 sections of 2 x 12 mini muffin tins with a little sunflower or vegetable oil.

Add the soft margarine, caster sugar, flour, egg and lemon rind to a bowl and beat together until smooth. 

Divide the mixture between the oiled muffin tin sections and press a cherry into the centre of each. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cakes are lightly risen and golden brown. Meanwhile mix the lemon juice and granulated sugar together in a bowl. 

Allow the cakes to cool for a few minutes then loosen the edges with a knife and transfer to a plate or baking sheet lined with non-stick baking paper. Quickly spoon the lemon juice mixture over the hot cakes and leave for the syrup to soak in and the sugar to form a crunchy topping. Serve warm or cold.
