Thermomix Lemon Yoghurt Cake

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.

This Thermomix Lemon Yoghurt Cake is quick, easy and delicious. Perfect to have with your afternoon cuppa!

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.

Thank you for your recipe. I saw it early this morning and decided to make it for my Birthday morning tea today at work. I made a couple of substitutions as it was for work and there are a number of dietary requirements and also it was 6am this morning so I just used what it had in the cupboard/fridge. I used Gluten Free SR flour and reduced the baking powder to 1 teaspoon. I also used coconut oil for the vegetable oil and used coconut yoghurt. It was absolutely amazing. No one could believe that it was Gluten free and Dairy free. I quickly made some lemon curd in the Thermomix to go with it. Absolutely yum!!

Hi Leanne, so glad you liked it! Great to hear your substitutions worked. I haven’t tried it with lemon curd on top but I can imagine it’s delicious! Also, Happy Birthday 🙂

I love this thermie lemon yoghurt cake, but I still think that the apple cake in the BCB is my favourite.
