Mini Lemon Drizzle Loaves
These zingy little loaves are perfect for a summer bake. You can make your own elderflower cordial if you can get your hands on some, it grows wild all over the place from late May until early July. Alternatively, you can buy some lovely cordial in the supermarket, I love the Belvoir one.
