Lemon Yogurt Drizzle Cake

The Sasa Special
I found this wonderful recipe for Lemon Cake on Sasasunakku blog. It's a lovely witty blog - with some great recipes, this is the first one I've tried and it was amazing. Thanks for letting me use your recipe on the blog Sasa. There is a large amount of yogurt in the cake - making it wonderfully moist, and relatively good for you! Hurray. I made it in some little ramekins - and they popped out small and cute. I followed her quantities and it made 5 large portions (I'm greedy!) I used Glenisk Greek yogurt, I doubt you can use low-fat yogurt, but don't take my word for it.

Thanks to the lovely Des Moriarty for the great pictures! Aren't they amazing?? We had a fun day of food photography over in my kitchen. Think we got some beautiful and delicious shots. Check out his other work here.

I'm putting my neck out here - but I think I prefer lemon cake to chocolate cake ..... what d'ya reckon?

These are so pretty - amazing photography and great idea to make mini-versions. I like how you've styled them with the blue and the yellow too. I've used low-fat yoghurt in the cake and it's fine but Greek tastes richer, natch ^_^

This looks amazing! I'm going to try it too :) I LOVE lemon cake, well anything with lemon actually.

Hey Sasa- thanks a mill was very happy with the photos. I do love greek yogurt - good to know you can use low fat - if you're feeling super virtuous!

Thanks Kerry - do make them - they're great, it's gone straight to the top of my cake charts! Cheffactor is goigng well. I'm at around 350, though some people have got over 700, I'm not at the top, but voting is going on for another while, I'm going to make a big push in another week or two. Thanks for voting!
