Well first of all a little bit of a shopping fail……… we totally forgot that we needed loo roll! Ooopppps! We don’t know how we had such an oversight as loo roll is fairly important but we did and we had to pop to the ‘really useful shop’ in Faringdon and purchase some emergency loo roll! 9 rolls for £2.29 and get this……. Its 3 ply and scented! The scent is lemon but too be honest it stinks but hey ho we supported a local shop.
Talking of lemons……. We’ve been meaning to share a recipe we tried a while ago with you so here you go today’s blog post is a lemon yogurt cake recipe! What a ‘crap’ lemony link……. (sorry couldn’t resist hehe)
This recipe makes about 16 pieces and is great as a little morning, afternoon or late night snack.
You will need:
100grams golden caster sugar
2 free range eggs
150grams natural yogurt ( we in actual fact used toffee yogurt)
Grated lemon zest and juice of 1 lemon
300 grams plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
For the sugary top (this seriously makes the cake)
50 grams sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
Preheat the Oven to 180c
Line a square tin (approx 20 cms)
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy
Gradually beat in the eggs
Beat in the yogurt, juice and zest
Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda and gently fold in
Pour into the tin and bake for approximately 45 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.
Whilst the cake is hot out of the oven mix together the sugar and lemon juice for the topping and put the mixture on top of the hot cake
Allow the cake to cool in the tin
When cool remove and cut into squares
We know this is basically a very similar event to the lemon drizzle we previously shared but…….. the yogurt adds an extra dimension.
