This is a very light and moist lemon sponge cake. It is a favourite with friends and family and especially the children. It isn't too sharp and not too sweet either. Definitely worth a try!

This is a very lovely and light lemon cake, made with lemon and yoghurt. Use cake flour or sponge flour for best results, though plain flour can be used in a pinch.
