    Holly's Lemon & Yoghurt Cake

    This lovely lemon cake was made by Holly as a thank you to her neighbour who often watered her lemon tree over the hot summer. It’s a light and fluffy lemon yoghurt cake, sandwiched with a lemon mascarpone filling and tangy lemon drizzle on top. It takes no time to make and is perfect for those who don’t like overly sweet cakes! The tartness of the yoghurt balances it well. Be sure to use proper Greek yoghurt not thickened sweet yoghurt and fresh lemons for the zest and juice.
