Lime, Yoghurt & Olive Oil Cake

1 cup full-fat Greek yoghurt
1/3 cup of olive oil
1 cup caster sugar
zest of one lime
1/4 cup lime juice
2 eggs

1 3/4 cups of sifted plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


pre-heat oven to 180 c / 356 f

grease a 22cm springform baking tin [olive oil spray is fine]

in a large bowl mix all the wet ingredients until well combined

in a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt

pour the wet ingredients mixture into the flour, and using a wooden spoon, mix until just combined; being careful not to overwork the batter

pour into the baking tin and cook for approx 45-50 mins; the cake is ready when it has browned on top and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean

leave it to cool in the cake tin for five minutes, and then invert it onto a cake cooler

once cooled, sprinkle with sugared lime zest : [1 tablespoon of lime zest with 2 tablespoons of sugar]
