Delicious Lemon Yoghurt Cake Recipe

Lemons, lemons, lemons! They are so versatile  – great in drinks, cakes, slices, biscuits, an even as an immune booster or a cleaner!

I had some spare lemons in my fridge from my parent’s backyard, so decided to use them up in a delicious lemon yoghurt cake recipe. The lemon zest provides plenty of flavour whilst the yoghurt ensures the cake stays fresher for longer.
