Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a spring form cake tin.

Zest and juice 3 of the lemons, slicing the remaining lemon and setting it aside for decoration. Whisk the eggs in a large mixing bowl, before adding all of the remaining ingredients and combining well.

Pour the mixture into a greased cake tin and decorate with the sliced lemons on top.

Cook your cake for 45 minutes, making sure a sharp knife comes out clean when you check it. If you'd like to make the drizzle, simply put the lemon juice, zest and maple syrup in a small saucepan on a low heat on the stove for 5 minutes and serve warm or cold with a drizzle on top!
