Lemon and Lime Yoghurt Slice

This recipe is a variation on a yoghurt based cake. The original recipe called for Greek yoghurt, but I used Alpro Plain Soya Yoghurt, and it tasted lovely!


  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 cup of caster sugar
  • ½ cup of plain yoghurt
  • ½ cup of olive oil
  • 1 Lemon – grate rind and extract juice
  • 1 Lime – grate rind and extract juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of plain flour (sifted)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Icing Sugar Powder – to dust over to decorate when cooled


  1. Preheat the oven to 180oC/350oF, and grease and line a cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Whisk together the eggs and caster sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add yoghurt, olive oil and vanilla extract to the egg and sugar mix, don’t over whisk.
  4. Sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  5. Add the lemon and lime rind to the flour mix.
  6. Add the flour mix to the egg mix, along with the juices of both the lemon and lime. Whisk until combined.
  7. Pour the mixture into the lined cake tin, and bake in the oven for 45mins. The top of the cake should be golden, and when inserting a skewer it should come out clean.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool.You can serve warm with ice-cream, or left to cool and enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee.
