Lemon Yoghurt Poppyseed Cake

Whet your appetite with this deliciously moist and zesty lemon cake.

I’ve been a busy Lizzy creating recipes for my upcoming lunchbox ebook (we start shooting it next week, eeek!) but with an abundance of lemons and poppyseeds, I decided it was time to create a new simple cake recipe for the blog while I was at it.

This cake is deliciously tangy and lovely and moist due to the yoghurt and olive oil.

It’s bright, tangy taste pairs perfectly with a good dollop cream and sweet, tart berries.

    Hi Brenda 🙂 Looks delish!
    Would this freeze ok? & do you think it might work for muffins?
    Thanks in advance

      I haven’t frozen it but can’t see why not! Muffins would be perfect, just reduce cooking time. Enjoy!
