What you need

  • 150g pottle Fresh ’n Fruity Dreamy Lemon Yoghurt
  • 1 pottle neutral oil, such as sunflower or grapeseed
  • 2 pottles caster sugar
  • 3 pottles plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • finely grated zest of 2 lemons
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 pottle icing sugar, for glaze
  • 2 tsp lemon juice, for glaze

Here's how it's done

  1. Preheat oven to 170˚C fanbake.
  2. Grease the sides of a 20 centimetre diameter springform cake tin and line the base with baking paper.
  3. Combine all ingredients except icing sugar and lemon juice in a large bowl, scraping out the pottle with a spatula between ingredients.
  4. Stir with a fork until evenly combined. Transfer to prepared tin and bake until the top is golden and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean (about 40 minutes).
  5. Allow to cool in the tin, then transfer to a serving plate.
  6. To make Lemon Glaze, half-fill pottle with icing sugar then add lemon juice and stir until smooth, adding a little extra if necessary to make a runny glaze. Drizzle over the cake and garnish with fresh seasonal berries.
