Lemon and Lime Cake Recipe - Twisted Citrus

 

Lemon & Lime Cake

INGREDIENTS
1c yoghurt
3/4c vegetable oil (Canola is fine)
2c sugar
2 eggs
2 limes and 3 lemons, zest and juice
4 Tbsp sugar
2c sifted self-raising flour

DIRECTIONS
Whisk together yoghurt, vegetable oil, 2 cups sugar, 2 eggs, and zest of lemons and limes.

Then add the flour and mix until smooth.

Place in greased and lined 22cm round cake tin and bake at 180C for 50-60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Mix juice of lemons and limes with 4 tablespoons of sugar until dissolved.

While still in the cake tin, poke holes in the surface of the cake with a skewer and then pour over the citrus and sugar mixture.

Once absorbed, remove cake from tin and set to cool on a wire rack.

Serve with Greek yoghurt or a combination of cream and yoghurt and some candied lemon peel or slices.

NZ LEMONS - MEYER

Looking for luscious lemons? Then stop your search now, because this lip-smacking lemon is a real sweetie. 

With less sour notes than some of its relatives and the sweetness of mandarin, this lemon is one of our favourites.

Rounder in shape and more orange in colour - inside and out - the Meyer lemon has an almost spicy bergamot scent to its zest.

Use it as you would a regular lemon - but with a fraction less sugar to account for the extra sweetness the Meyer adds.

Anyone else dreaming of sweet and sticky lemon tart? Or perhaps roasted citrus tossed into a summer salad?
