Yoghurt Cake

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Chrissyo

A good lunch box cake. I picked this cake recipe up many years ago at a school tuck shop meeting. Makes me think I am eating healthy because it has plain yoghurt in the recipe. *wink*

This is like a light lemon pound cake. So easy to make. I used all lemon peel. It did sink a little in the middle, no problem. I made a lemon glaze for the top. VERY good! I will make this again, and I want to try it with orange flavor. Thanks Chrissy!
