Lemon cake


For the cake

  • Preheat the oven to 170ο C (340ο F) set to fan.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the sugar, the butter, and beat with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 3-4 minutes, until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one by one. Wait for each one to be incorporated before adding the next.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and add the yogurt, salt, the lemon zest, and mix with a serving spoon.
  • In a bowl add the flour, the baking powder, and mix with a spoon. Transfer to the mixer’s bowl with the rest of the ingredients and mix softly.
  • Transfer to a buttered and floured 26 cm Bundt pan and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Remove and let it cool well.

For the glaze

  • Put the icing sugar into a bowl, add the lemon juice in small batches, and stir. The amount of lemon juice you will need depends on how juicy your lemons are. Slowly add the juice to the icing sugar because if you add 2 drops more, this may ruin the consistency of your glaze.
  • Spread it over the whole surface of the cake and add the lemon zest.
  • Allow 2-3 minutes for the glaze to be stabilized and serve.
