French Grandmother's Lemon Yogurt Cake

I had seen this cake on Pintrest and liked the look of it,  I had a pot of yogurt and some lemons that needed using last weekend so decided to give it a go.  A very easy recipe to put together and make however you are better off using the wet tea towel method to ensure you get a nice flat top.

Very zingy and lemony cake that I will make again.

For the Cake:

200 ml plain or greek yogurt
1 cup caster sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
grated zest of one lemon
1/2 cup canola oil

For the Glaze:

Juice of one lemon
1 cup icing sugar

Beat together the eggs, yogurt and sugar until smooth.

Combine flour, baking powder and lemon zest.

Fantastic grater!

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined.  Add the oil and beat until smooth.

Pour batter into a lined spring form tin and bake in 175 C pre heated oven for 30 to 40 minutes.  If using the wet tea towel method to get a flat top it will be closer to 40 to 45 minutes.  Remove from oven when cooked.

Mix together glaze ingredients and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes.  Pour half over the top of the cake while still hot and in the cake tin.  Allow to sit for 10 minutes in the tin.

On a piece of baking paper turn the cake out and over.  While still warm brush the rest of the glaze over the base until absorbed.

Dust with icing sugar and serve.
