    This is the softest, fluffiest cake! I love it. My family loved it too. I’ve made two in three days and will make another tonight with raspberries.

    So I forgot to add the butter! Left it melted in the microwave BUT had added about a tablespoon of yogurt extra to help mix it together and it was amazing. I used vanilla Greek yogurt and had no lemons so left the zest out. Cooked perfectly after 55 minutes. Won’t bother adding butter next time!

    I made this today, I didn’t have any lemon zest but added a good splash of fresh lemon juice, it was beautiful. Daughter loved it too which was great as I’d made it for school lunch box
