Butter, at room temperature

Caster sugar

Eggs, separated

Grated lemon rind

Lemon juice

Natural yogurt

Plain flour

Baking powder

Bicarbonate of soda




Icing sugar

Lemon juice

Natural yogurt

Method :
  • Preheat the oven to 180oC/350oF/Gas 4. Grease a 3 liter fluted tube tin and dust with flour.
  • Cream the butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the lemon rind, juice and yogurt and stir.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda. In another bowl, beat the egg whites and salt until they hold stiff peaks.
  • Fold the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, then fold in a dollop of egg whites. Fold in the remaining whites.
  • Pour into the tin and bake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Leave in the tin for 15 minutes, then turn out and cool on a wire rack.
  • For the glaze, sift the icing sugar into a bowl. Stir in the lemon juice and just enough yogurt to make a smooth glaze.
  • Set the cooled cake on the wire rack over a sheet of greaseproof paper. Pour over the glaze and allow to set.
