    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 an easy recipe for two lovely lemon and poppy seed loaves. The yoghurt helps to keep these cakes deliciously moist! Enjoy as is with a cuppa, warm with butter. Or you can top these with a lovely lemon drizzle icing.

    My neighbour always used to bake this cake when we were children, and now I finally have the recipe. This is a great cake to cut into squares or slices and to wrap individually for cake sales, packed lunches or school fetes.

    One of my fave recipes that my grandma taught me how to make! My mum doesn't eat dairy so I substitute the milk with soya milk and it still tastes the same! It's really tangy and is lovely with the little lemon decorations!

    A zesty twist on a traditional favourite and perfect to offset the sweetness of the filling. Uses the traditional "thirds" technique.
