So, you've tried your hand at a few varieties of loaves and you're hungry for more! As you've guessed by now, we're crazy about breadmakers and one of the main reasons is their versatility - you don't have to just stick to bread! We all love a good slice of cake but if you're one of those odd people who doesn't, you might want to skip this post! Nevertheless, the rest of us can delight in this delicious lemon yoghurt cake straight from the good old bread machine.

This gorgeous lemon yoghurt cake is delightfully moist thanks to the yoghurt and olive oil, not to mention the lemon drizzle, and we think you'll appreciate the fact that it uses such healthy ingredients!


The drizzle:


First off, you will need to sift your flour and baking powder through a sieve, straight into your breadmaker pan.

Once you've weighed out the sugar and poppy seeds and zested your lemon, rub the sugar, poppy seeds and zest together with your fingers in a mixing bowl. Then tip this into your bread machine's pan.

Grab a jug, mug or another suitable container for the eggs and yoghurt, pour these in and give them a sound beating! You can now pour this mixture into your breadmaker pan along with the olive oil and a pinch of salt.

In a jug or mug, beat the eggs with the yoghurt. Add this, plus the olive oil and a pinch of salt, to the breadmaker tin.

Now you can set your machine to Cake Cycle and while it does the baking, you can prepare your drizzle. Simply sieve the icing sugar into a cup of lemon juice and give it a good stir to dissolve.

So, that's it! Once your machine beeps, your cake is ready. If you're not sure, just skewer it!. If the skewer comes out clean, the cake is cooked. Remove it from the breadmaker, poke plenty of little holes in the top and liberally apply your drizzle.

This cake is lovely and moist! Lemon and poppy seeds is a classic cake combination, but if you are staunchly against poppy seeds you could substitute them or leave them out altogether. Whatever you do, you will end up with a delicious and morish cake!
