1. Place melted butter, eggs, sugar, lemon zest and juice and in a medium size mixing bowl and beat together with an electric whisk to combine. Add remaining ingredients and whisk for a further minute to make a runny cake batter.
2. Spoon into a deep 450g/1lb greased and lined traditional loaf tin. Bake in oven at 170°/150°C Fan/Gas Mark 3 until the cake is well risen, golden and just firm to the touch.
3. Rest on a cooling tray for 5 minutes before turning out. Meanwhile, combine the remaining lemon juice and caster sugar together and spoon onto the cooked cake to give a crystalline topping. Allow to set before storing in an airtight tin for up to a week.
