Spoon the mixture into a greased and base lined 1 kg (2 lb) loaf tin.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C, 350°F, Gas 4 for 1 hour or until cooked.
Turn out on to a wire tray.
Put the lemon juice and sugar in a saucepan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved.
Whilst cake is warm, drizzle the syrup over so that it soaks into the cake.
