Alison Holst's Lemon Cake Recipe
I found this one in the DomPost & I make one when I have a productive Lemon tree! It's Yummy and doesn't dry out. I make mine in a food processor but you can also make it by hand. Nice just warm out of the oven...
Rind of 2 lemons
1.5 cups sugar
2 large eggs
0.5 cup canola or similar oil
0.5 tsp salt
1 cup yoghurt (plain is best)
2-3 tbs Lemon juice
1.5 cups self raising flour
Turn the oven to 190C or 180C if using a fan oven.
Put sugar into bowl with metal chopping blade, peel the lemons using a peeler & whizz with the sugar until well blended.
Add the eggs, oil, & salt - process until thick & smooth. Add the Yoghurt & Lemon juice - blend enough to mix.
Add the flour and process just enough to combine with the other ingredients.
Grate all the Lemon peel into a large bowl. Add sugar, eggs, & oil then whisk together. Add salt, Yoghurt, Lemon Juice and mix again. Sift in the flour and mix until just combined.
Pour cake mixture into a (7 cup) ring pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until sides shrink/skewer is clean/centre springs back when pressed.
Serve with Yoghurt or Whipped Cream!
