Lemon Yogurt Cake

It has been a long break from my blog!! Life has been busy and wonderful!
Hope to post often and share my recipes with you all……

Let me start with a simple lemon yogurt cake…..

Lemon Yogurt Cake

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
2 eggs
1 ½ cups sugar
1 cup yogurt (I used low fat)
¾ cup vegetable oil (or 10 tbsp olive oil)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp grated lemon rind (see notes)
¼ tsp lemon essence

Method:
Sieve flour and baking powder. Add salt.
In a large bowl, whisk yogurt, oil, eggs, sugar, lemon juice and lemon rind until sugar dissolves. You can use a beater as well.
Mix in the flour.
Pour into a greased baking pan and bake in a preheated oven at 160 degree for 30-35 mins.
Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or cold.

Frosting:
If you wish to frost the cake, mix ½ cup fine granulated sugar OR icing powder and 3-4 tbsp lemon juice. Pour over warm cake and allow to set.

Notes:
Use a sharp knife and peel the rind. Pulse in a grinder jar along with 2-3 tbsp of sugar to get finely grated lemon rind!
