Yoghurt and Lemon Cake - Secret Recipe

Yoghurt and Lemon Cake

I love this cake - seriously you're lucky i'm sharing it. 
So keep it to yourself ok  :)

¾ cup Castor Sugar
60ml Coconut Oil
2 Eggs Separated
300g Greek Yoghurt
1 Lemon grated zest 
 1 ½ cup Self Raising Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 tablespoon Desiccated Coconut

Using a mixer beat together the Coconut Oil and Sugar and then add egg yolks one at a time mixing in well.

Add in the Lemon zest and yoghurt.

Slowly mix in the Flour, Baking Soda & Coconut.

In a separate small bowl whisk the egg whites until they become soft peaks  and then fold into the cake batter. 

Pour into cake pan. I tend to use a Bundt tin

Cook at 160- 180 Celsius fan forced for about 1hr 10min.  I think sometimes the seasonal changes in the yoghurt can affect the timings as well as the differences in ovens so about an hour.

Icing:  Icing sugar and lemon juice and a little colouring. pending on the consistency you are after.

  7. The dr told me to sort out cholesterol .... This is a cake for that, right?

  8. Oh that looks beyond amazing! Think I need to make this for Miss Ava's birthday on Monday :)

  9. Sluuuuurp!! That looks awesome. I've tried Donna Hay's version but think it's too sickly sweet... well, it's good but I'd been thinking I must try to adapt it. This looks fab though... bookmarking!

  10. I'm not a big cake eater but this makes my mouth water! I love the addition of the greek yoghurt. Is it possible for these things to "fall"?
