I made this cake in 20 minutes. Just 20 minutes and it was better than many other cakes I spent much longer to prepare.
Three key ingredients: natural yogurt (and I am sorry but I choose full fat over low fat), coconut and a juicy lemon and it is love at first sight..I mean.. first bite!
Here is my recipe for today: a moist, soft, perfumed and addictive lemony cake.
Serve it with fresh berries (like raspberries or blueberries) and cream for a touch of luxury.
- Prep Time : 20 minutes
- Cook Time : 40 minutes
Whip the eggs with the sugar to a creamy consistency then add the sifted flour and the baking powder; mix well.
Add the lemon zest
Melt the butter, let it cool down and add it to the mixture. Add the coconut, the yogurt and the juice of the lemon. Mix well.
Pour the mixture on a greased round baking tray and cook it at 180C or 350F for 40 minutes.
Cover it up with tinfoil during the last 10 or 15 minutes if the top looks too brown.
Lightly dust with powdered (icing) sugar before serving.
