Lemon Yoghurt Cake

This is the BIGGEST cake I've ever made. Recipe from a work colleague & I'm making it for my team Extravaganza tomorrow.

Mix the following until just combined:
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • juice & grated rind of 4 lemons
  • 1-½ - 2 cups of flavourless oil e.g grapeseed - I used 1-½ C Rice Bran oil
  • 1-¾ cup plain unsweetened yoghurt
  • 4 cups self raising flour
  • pinch salt
Transfer to a greased 28-30cm tin & bake 160° C for 1-½ hours until springy to the touch. Cool before turning out.

Ice with cream cheese icing if desired - mix in a food processor (or serve with thickened cream).

  • 75g soft butter
  • 250g cream cheese (not spreadable)
  • juice & finely grated rind of 1 lemon
  • 4 cup icing sugar


  1. hmm this is different, I must try it. I just made some friands for the first time in my life, they turned out ok, I left hubby to get it out of the oven as I went out and he just took it out instead of seeing that it wasnt cooked LOL', that will teach me to trust him explicitly

  2. Sounds yummy Karen. Was it easy to make? I'm not much of a cook/baker but have to make some yummies for my mini catty launch party so might give this a go!

  3. This is so yummy I had to have a second piece
