This recipe has been in the family for over 28 years it was given to my Mother, by her mother from her Aunt.
I use my kitchen whizz to make this cake
1 & 3/4 cups caster sugar
1 cup canola oil
rind 2-3 lemons
1/2 tsp salt
then add
2 eggs
one at a time
1 cup plain yoghurt
1 Tblsp tsp lemon juice

fold in
2 cups self raising flour

*paint a 23cm square tin with tin glide
Bake at 180C for thirty minutes.
Let cake rest in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack.
Traditional madeira cake is served dusted with icing sugar, there are no rules, we have moved on, ice it if you wish.

*tin glide
melt 4ozs of fat add 1oz of vege oil, stir in 2 ozs flour. mix well. keep out of the fridge, in a cool place. You may need to melt and stir a bit to use in winter.

Lemon Yoghurt Cake
This recipe has been in the family for over 25 years it was given to my Mother a friend in Seattle hence the use of a "bundt" tin. Bundt tins are available for sale in our catalogue. The cake keeps extremely well and freezes beautifully. Just remember to grease tin well with butter and dust with flour,shaking off the excess before filling with mixture.
1 & 3/4 cups caster sugar
rind 2-3 lemons
2 eggs
1 cup sunflower oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup plain unsweetened yoghurt (not low fat)
2-3 tsp lemon juice
2 cups self raising flour
Beat eggs,oil,sugar and peel together in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients in the order above. Butter and flour a 24cm bundt tin . Bake at 180C for 40-45 minutes. Test with a cake tester. Let cake rest only 5 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack. Dust cold cake with sifted icing sugar.

All much the same I reckon.

Just bumping this for myself.

Thanks so much for this made some amazing cakes (and looking for it now to make another) have switched one of the lemons for orange which worked well and made icing from icing sugar and orange juice which was super yum.

Made it for a fair and it was the first cake to sell too (to my surprise because it didn't look 'pretty' bit of a shame because I was thinking of buying it back for myself ha ha.

My wee boy says it is the best cake ever ( and he loves chocolate) and people keep asking for it

So thankyou

Google Basbousa.
Use lemon syrup.

Madeira cake is nowhere near a lemon yoghurt cake. Madeira is a very dense heavy cake. Lemon yoghurt cake is very moist and fluffy because of the yoghurt.

chick _inn . was looking for a lemon cake recipe, here is three much as if they were all spin-offs from my recipe. lol. thats how things roll out I expect.

Pickles7, there has been much discussion about the this particular recipe, with many people claiming it as their own. As I understand it the recipe originated from Alison Holst many years ago.

After trying a few recipes . this is my favourite. It's a lovely moist cake & always a hit when I serve it to guests. (I don't make it unless I have a crowd, cos I'd scoff the lot!)

I hate to think my grandad jumped another fence.
