Add eggs, flour and lemon zest and mix well.
Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
Put the cake mix in the tin and bake at 180 C for about 50 minutes (This is not an exact time as all ovens are different. Best way to check a cake is baked is to insert a knife in the cake and if it comes out clean the cake is done;)
Mix the 80g of sugar with the lemon juice.
Gently prick the cake all over with a fork. Leaving the cake in the tin, pour the juice over it leaving the juice to saok in and cool down.
