Lemon Cake

Lemon Cake

I love this cake. This is looking very beautiful and tasty. It is easy to prepare. In fact, this cake is not too sweet, which makes it perfect for breakfast, perfect as a light dessert after a heavy dinner!. This is a really easy lemon cake, with no glazes and no whipping or folding. I wanted a cake that was not overly sweet, as I did not do a lemon glaze I just use a powdered sugar for decoration


  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 50 g butter, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • zest of a one lemon
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of powdered sugar for decoration


Cut a baking paper circle to fit the bottom of a middle round cake pan.Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Sift the flour in a bowl and combine with baking powder, baking soda, salt, lemon zest and sugar, and set aside

Cream butter and sugar together with a mixer until very white and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add milk, yoghurt, lemon juice, vanilla essence and quickly combine all the ingredients to a smooth batter. Add the flour mixture and beat until smooth

Pour into prepared pan and bake for about 45-50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Carefully remove the cake from the pan and let cool completely.

After the cake is completely cooled, dust with powdered sugar and served.
