This picture was taken last week during the breakfast with my Turkish friends and it makes me smile when I look at it. We enjoyed a lot as always...

  • 2 eggs
  • zest and juice of 2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup of plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1+1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla sugar
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Sift flour, vanilla sugar, and baking soda together in a bowl.
Whisk eggs and sugar in another large mixing bowl until it gets creamy. Gradually add yogurt, vegetable oil, lemon zest, and lemon juice whisking consistently.
Add sifted flour, vanilla sugar, and baking soda to the bowl and mix thoroughly.

Pour into 12 41/2 by 3-inch loaf pan and bake approximately 50 minutes. Check the cake by inserting a toothpick into the center. The toothpick will come out clean when the cake is done.

Hi, I've just finished the lemon cake. It looks tasty. Tomorrow i will know how it tastes.
Could you indicate the mesures in gr in your recipes? It will be more easy for all of us (in Spain we use gr or litres). Thanks a lot. Esther from Barcelona Spain.
