So this cake has a funny story to it. Last week I wasn’t feeling the best, but despite this, I don’t know what came over me, but I had the desire to make a cake. I found the Thermomix Yoghurt cake recipe, but I didn’t have lemon or grapeseed oil as per their recipe, so I improvised. The recipe needed a pinch of salt, but in a daze rather than grabbing what I thought was the salt grinder to give it one wind of rock salt, as I was walking it back to the pantry I realised I just cracked pepper into the batter. Ooh dear, I got what I could out, but thought hey, Lemon Pepper is meant to be a good combo! I think I got most of the pepper out, but we all had a good laugh.
The recipe also required the zest of one lemon, however, I didn’t have any lemon in the fridge so I used 2 drops of lemon essential oil which was perfect and a great way to use my oils!!
I made this recipe in the Thermomix, but Donna Hay has a great regular recipe you can make with your electric mixer.
