Lemon and yoghurt drizzle cake

This gorgeous lemon loaf has a matching yoghurt drizzle, making it impossible to stop after one slice.

Serving: makes 1 loaf
Time: 50 minutes
Difficulty: Easy


  • 125g natural yoghurt
  • 500g self-raising flour
  • 150ml vegetable oil
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 lemon, zest grated
  • 1 tsp icing sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon


  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4. Lightly grease a 1kg loaf tin with oil.
  2. Pour the yoghurt into a large bowl. Pour the oil into the yoghurt pot until three-quarters full. Add this to the yoghurt and stir to combine. Wash out the yoghurt pot.
  3. Add the grated lemon zest, eggs, sugar and flour, using the yoghurt pot to measure the sugar and flour. Stir to combine well.
