Method Prep:20min › Cook:30min › Ready in:50min
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and line a 900g loaf tin.
For the cake:
In a large bowl combine the eggs and sugar and beat together until pale and creamy. Mix in the oil and yoghurt. Fold in the rest of the ingredients and pour mixture into prepared baking tin.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from the oven.
For the syrup:
While the cake is cooking, make the syrup by bringing the water and sugar to the boil. Simmer for about 5 minutes before adding the lemon juice. Continue simmering for a further 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
Pour the syrup over the cake and chill before serving.
I love this recipe and so do my children! The first time i made it i forgot the baking soda which really makes it less stodgy. I have made it quite a few times and i never use all the syrup. Also i find that i cant quite get it to be as fluffy as the picture shows. but we all love it anyhow! - 20 Jun 2015
