Lemon Drizzle

I’ve been keeping this one to myself for a long time, only a few people have been allowed the recipe.
However, I think it’s about time that everyone has a go. It’s the best cake I’ve ever made so I hope it works well for you too.
It’s really quick to make and tastes really really good.

Lemon Drizzle Yogurt Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 x 150g pot of natural yogurt
  • 1 pot of oil
  • 2 pots of caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 pots of self raising flour
  • zest of 2 lemons

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 160°C
  • Measure out all of the ingredients into a large bowl using the yogurt pot.
  • Mix the ingredients together with a balloon whisk until all of the ingredients are combined.
  • Transfer the mix into two small loaf tins, lined with baking parchment.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes, until the top is golden and a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the cake.
  • While the cake is still hot, squeeze over the juice of the two lemons and sprinkle a little caster sugar over the cake.
