This cake is one of my go to recipes! It's sweet and tangy, perfect for afternoon tea. The cake has yogurt in it which makes this cake extra moist and gives it a fine crumb. My favourite part of this cake is actually the glaze. It is sweet and sour at the same time and it really accentuates the yogurt in the cake. This cake is completely versatile; I sometimes make it with oranges or tangerines! It is really easy and quick to make, but it bakes a good hour or so. When making the cake, I suggest you lay out all your ingredients and just follow this recipe :)

  • 1cup / 225g  butter, room temperature
  • 3cups / 390g  all purpose flour
  • 1tsp  baking soda
  • a big pinch of salt
  • 2cups / 400g  sugar
  • 6  large eggs
  • 2tbsp  lemon zest
  • 1/2cup / 120ml  fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4cup / 180ml  plain yogurt
  • 1tsp  vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2cup / 180g  powdered sugar
  • 3-4tbsp  lemon juice


1) Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. In a medium bowl mix together your dry ingredients: flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. In a smaller bowl mix together your wet ingredients: lemon zest, 1/2cup lemon juice and yogurt; set aside.

2) In a large bowl beat together butter and sugar until fluffy and pale. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping the bowl after every few eggs. Add in the vanilla. Lower down your mixer speed and add 1/4 of the dry ingredients. Then add 1/3 of the wet ingredients. Alternate the dry and wet, trying not to overmix the batter.

3) Grease your bundt pan generously with butter and coat with flour. Pour in the batter and bake for 55-60 minutes. Check if it's baked with a skewer. When baked, leave on a wire rack to cool completely in the pan.

4) Make the glaze. Sift the powdered sugar and mix in the lemon juice. Gently remove the cooled cake from the pan and put on a wire rack. Put a piece of parchment paper under the rack and drizzle the cake with glaze. Let the glaze set for 10-15 minutes and if you want, cover with sprinkles. Enjoy!
