Lemon Drizzle Yoghurt Mini Cake Recipe


  • 150 grams (1 small tub) Dairy Farmers Lemon Cream yoghurt
  • 75 grams Caster Sugar
  • 150 ml Grapeseed Oil
  • 270 grams Self Raising Flour
  • 2 large Eggs
  • Juice and zest of 1 Lemon
  • Dried Edible Flowers
  • 150 grams Dairy Farmers Lemon Cream yoghurt (additional)


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (160 degrees Celsius fan forced).
  • Grease two 11cm diameter spring form tins (you could also use one 22 cm diameter spring form tin) with a dash of grapeseed or olive oil.
  • Place lemon zest, lemon juice, flour, sugar, oil, eggs and 150 grams of Dairy Farmers Lemon Cream yoghurt in a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spatula, thoroughly mix all ingredients together until a smooth and thick consistency is formed.
  • Pour the cake batter into the two prepared tins (there will be additional cake batter which can be used for a third layer) and bake in the oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until a wooden skewer (or toothpick) comes out clean.
  • Once cooked, remove and let cool in the tins for 5 minutes before releasing. With a clean knife, gently remove the cake from the bottom of the tin and further cool on a cake rack.
  • Once the cake is completely cool (this is important), use a clean sharp knife to trim off the top of each cake so as to have two perfectly flat discs of cake.
  • To assemble, place one of the cakes onto a cake stand (or plate) and generously place a large dollop of Dairy Farmers Lemon Cream yoghurt on top, spreading evenly across the cake. Place the second cake on top of the yoghurt and repeat process.
  • Garnish with some lemon zest and dried edible flowers and serve immediately.


*It is important to serve this cake immediately if using additional yoghurt between the layers to retain the cakes appearance.
**It is important that the cake is completely cooled before placing the yoghurt on top of it to prevent the yoghurt melting.
