Description

Creamy, soft and delicate, this Mary Berry Lemon Yoghurt Cake is a simple baked dessert prepared in an hour, with a few cheap ingredients.

Ingredients

  • cups (11 ounces) caster sugar
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 1 lemon rind grated

For the icing

  • ½ cup icing sugar
  • tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven at 180C / 160C with fan.
  • Grease a baking tin of 8 inch diameter
  • Beat together the egg yolks, sugar and butter in a bowl using a fork or an electric mixer.
  • Add the greek yoghurt, lemon rind and continue mixing until smooth
  • Whisk the egg whites separately in a bowl
  • Gently fold in the flour first and then the egg whites.
  • Pour the mixture into the greased tin and bake for 1 hour to 1¼ hours or until the cake has risen and thoroughly cooked.
  • Leave to cool off on a wire rack.

For the icing

  • Sift the icing sugar, and mix together with the lemon juice.
  • Pour over the cold cake and leave to set.

Tips

  • A simple recipe to follow, follow the instructions step by step. 
  • Avoid overbaking to maintain a moist texture. Different ovens may take different baking times. To determine if your cake is ready, insert a knife or toothpick into the centre. If it comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs clinging to it, the cake is done.  

Variations

  • Apple Coconut Cake: This Coconut Cake with Apples by Mary Berry is gluten-free.
  • Tottenham Cake: This Tottenham Cake has icing on top and is similar to the old-school cake recipe.
  • Coconut Cake: This coconut cake by Ina Garten is another light and simple recipe with layers of cream

Storage Tips

  • Store in a closed container and refrigerate for up to 3 days. If you don’t put the icing on top then you can leave it at room temperature in an airtight container for a couple of days.
  • Freeze for up to 3 months in an airtight container. Thaw in the refrigerator and take it out at room temperature before serving.
