Double lemon drizzle cake with poppy seeds

Hi
Hope you can help. I made the above cake this morning but it sank slightly in the middle and was a bit soggy. One of the eggs had a double yolk so I counted this as two and I used the lemon squeezers on the food processor. Could this be where I went wrong? I didn't open the door until 5 mins before taking it out.
Thanks.

Lemon Drizzle Cake

Hello wistle,

When we squeeze lemons we use either a reamer or press them by hand. You probably would have extracted much more juice on your machine. Also I would never count a double yolk as two eggs as the overall weight cannot be much more than a normal large egg so I would expect that is the reason for the dip.
This cake is very moist when the drizzle is added but you probably extracted so much juice that your quantity of syrup was more that the cake could hold.

I hope you will try it again, it is one of our favourites.

Best wishes

Lindsey
