Preheat the oven to 180˚C (160˚C for fan assisted ovens)/ Gas Mark 4.

Mix the eggs, oil, water and cake mix gently together and whisk (by hand or electric mixer) for 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy.

Pour the cake mixture evenly into the two greased cake tins.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 22-25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Leave the cakes in the tins for 5 minutes.

Mix the granulated sugar and lemon juice in the small bowl. Spoon this mixture all over one of the warm cakes still in the tin. Leave this cake to cool completely in the tin – the topping will go crispy as the cake cools. Turn the second cake out onto the wire rack and leave to cool completely.

Spread the lemon icing over the cake without the lemon drizzle topping. Gently remove the other cake from the tin and place on top of the icing.
