Light Fresh Lemony Cake - Delicious

I love this cake - seriously you're lucky i'm sharing it.
So keep it to yourself ok :)

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup Castor Sugar
  • 60ml Coconut Oil
  • 2 Eggs Separated
  • 300g Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 Lemon grated zest
  • 1 ½ cup Self Raising Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 tablespoon Desiccated Coconut

Method

Using a mixer beat together the Coconut Oil and Sugar and then add egg yolks one at a time mixing in well.

Add in the Lemon zest and yoghurt.

Slowly mix in the Flour, Baking Soda & Coconut.

In a separate small bowl whisk the egg whites until they become soft peaks and then fold into the cake batter.

Pour into cake pan. I tend to use a Bundt tin

Cook at 160- 180 Celsius fan forced for about 1hr 10min. I think sometimes the seasonal changes in the yoghurt can affect the timings as well as the differences in ovens so about an hour.

Icing: Icing sugar and lemon juice and a little colouring. pending on the consistency you are after.

Yum! Stopping by from FFF link party - looks so good. Do you think using oil other than coconut will make much difference?

Anna :-)
