Lemon Yoghurt Pound Cake

Leave a comment

Another one from my notebook 🙂
(Would be more than happy to acknowledge the source if only I could remember)

Who can resist the tanginess of lemon when a little sugar is added to it? This cake has lemon zest, lemon juice and if that was not enough, lemon glaze too if you are in the mood. I have tried this with and without the glaze, both are equally good. A word of caution – add the glaze only if patience is one your virtues. It tastes better after a day or two. (Now you know why I didn’t add the glaze this time 😉 )

Flour – 3/4 cup
Unsalted butter – 1/2 cup at room temp
Baking powder – 1/2 tsp
Salt – 1/4 tsp
Sugar – 1/2 cup
Lemon zest – 1 tbsp
Lemon Juice – 2 tS
Eggs – 2
Vanilla – 1 tsp
Yoghurt – 2 tbsp

Sift flour, baking powder and salt
Cream sugar and butter till light and fluffy
Add lemon zest, juice and vanilla and mix well
Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition
Add flour mixture alternating with youghurt. Start and end with flour mixture
Beat at low speed until smooth
Bake in a pre heated oven at 350F/180C for 40-45 minutes

Lemon Glaze

Stir 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tsp lime juice till sugar dissolves. Poke the cake with a tooth pick ad spread the sugar – lemon mix over the top and sides of the cake. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
Keep for a day before serving if you are adding the glaze.
