  • Unsalted butter 175gm
  • Caster sugar 175g
  • Eggs 3
  • lemons, zested 3
  • Lemon juice 5 tbsp
  • Flour 250gm
  • Baking powder 1 tbsp
  • Thick yogurt 100gm
  • Icing sugar 400gm
  • Lemon zest as required

For the candied peel:

  • Lemons 2
  • Sugar 200gm

Beat the butter and caster sugar until fluffy and pale. Add the eggs in one at a time, stir in the lemon zest. Fold in the flour, baking powder, ½ tsp salt and the yogurt. Spoon the mixture into a greased and lined 9” tin. Bake at 180 degrees C for 50 minutes, or until golden brown on top and firm to the touch. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Sieve the icing sugar into a bowl and add in enough of the lemon juice to create a thick icing. Spoon over the icing, allowing it to drip down the sides a little. Top with the lemon zest or candied peel. To make candied lemon peel, peel large, wide strips from the lemons using a vegetable peeler. Remove any pith with a knife, then julienne the peel into very thin matchsticks. Add the sugar into a saucepan with 200ml water and set over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Add the lemon strips and simmer gently for 15 minutes, then scoop the peel out using a slotted spoon and set on a piece of kitchen paper to cool. Use to decorate the top of your cake.
