This is the one you are looking for - I kept the page from the catalogue, but haven't made it yet.
220g Butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
3 tablespoons fresh lemon zest
3 cups sifted flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1/4 cup milk

Method: Preheat oven to 170 C. In a large bowl beat together butter & sugar until pale & creamy.
Beat eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Lastly,blend in lemon zest.
Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl (flour, baking powder & baking soda). In a third bowl beat together sour cream & milk. Add flour mixture to the creamed butter mixture, alternatively with sour cream mixture, adding each in three additions.
Fold each addition gently but thoroughly. Pour into a lined 26cm round cake pan. Bake for 30 - 35 mins.
Prepare the icing by blending 250g of softened cream cheese, 125g of softened butter, 500g icing sugar, juice and zest of 1 lemon, until smooth.
Evenly spread on the middle sides and top of cake.
Sprinkle with additional lemon zest to decorate, if desired.

I would love to know how it turns out.

This is another great lemon cake, I make it every other week for the lads at work. Last time I had no plain yoghurt so made it with Piako passionfruit yoghurt and O.M.G. gorgeous!

Lemon Yoghurt Cake

Zest of 2 big lemons. Beat this with:
1 cup oil (I use rice bran but any cooking oil is fine)
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups sugar
Add 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup yoghurt (plain)
3 tablespoons lemon juice

2 cups of flour & 2 tsp baking powder
Bake at 180°c for 40-60 mins or until cooked. I use a 23cm square, oiled tin (Lined with baking paper works fine)

firemansgirl l have just made your recipe and it smells very nice and l am looking forward to tasting it tomorrow and l used the paiko passionfruit yoghurt and the batter tasted very nice

firemansgirl, Aug 21, 9:50am
Oooh yes please do tell me what you think of it. The guys at work just get it 'as is'. I bake it in a square tin for them so it goes further. When making it for the girls, it gets done in a round tin, cut nicely into wedges, and when we're naughty, a nice dollop of whipped cream on the side!

firemansgirl that is so nice and moist and doesn't need any icing it is perfect on its own
