Yoghurt and coconut cake











Use the yoghurt pot as a measure

  1. Preheat oven to 180°.  Line the cake tin.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar till light and frothy.
  3. Add the yoghurt, oil and lemon zest and mix in gently with a spatula.
  4. Fold in flour and lastly the coconut.
  5. Turn into the lined tin and level the surface with a spatula.  Cook for about 35 minutes.
  6. Turn out when cool.

The original recipe contains ½ sachet baking powder to ensure a more risen cake.  I personally think it is even more delicious without since the yoghurt flavour is more pronounced.
