Lemon Yoghurt Cake

My lemon tree is still full of lemons, so I thought I would share this recipe with you.  As the cake contains oil and yoghurt in place of solid fat is is very easy to mix.  It is a great cake to make on the weekends with the kids. 

  • rind of 2 lemons;
  • 1 cup of oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup plain  yogurt
  • 3 Table spoons lemon juice
  • 2 cups self-raising flour

Grate all the coloured peel from the lemons into a mixing bowl.  Add the oil, eggs and sugar and beat with a rotary beater until thick and well blended.  Add the yoghurt and lemon juice and beat again while adding flour little at a time. 

Then pour the cake mix into a prepared tin and bake at 180C for around 30 -40 min depending on the sort of cake tin you are cooking it in. 

I like to serve this plain with a little icing sugar sprinkled on top.
