I know its been ages but here is another gorgeous recipe

Lemon Yoghurt Drizzle Cake

for the cake
250g (8oz) unsalted butter, very soft, plus extra to grease the tin
275g (90z) golden caster suger
4 Brown Eggs
275g (9oz) Self Raising Flour
pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 lemons, zested and juiced
250g (8oz) Greek Natural Yoghurt
2 tsp Icing Sugar

for the drizzle
2 lemons zested and juiced
150g (5oz) golden caster sugar

1.   Butter and line the base and sides of 23cm round springform cake tin.  Preheat oven to gas 4, 180 or fan       160C.  Bea the butter and sugar together with an electric whisk until fluffy and light.  Add the eggs, one         by one beating well between each addition.

2.   Fold in the flour and salt to make a smooth batter.  Fold in the Vanilla Extract, Lemon Zest, 3                       tablespoons of lemon juice and 100g (3.5oz) of the greek yoghurt.  Pour into the tin smoothing the top           and bake for 50 mins to an hour until golden and springy on top.  Spike the cake all over with a skewer.

3.   Combine the lemon zest, juice and sugar for the drizzle and pour over the warmed cake.  Set aside to           cool completely in the tin.

4.   Stir the icing sugar into the remaining greek yoghurt.  Serve slices of cooled cake with spoonfuls of the sweetened yoghurt.


If the cake starts to colour too quickly when you put it in the oven place a piece of foil over it.
