Lemon Bundt Cake

This is a very easy recipe and it tastes divine!

Sew White Hansel and Gretel Bundt 1


I used the Fairy Tale Hansel and Gretel cottage Nordic Ware bundt pan for the cake but it would also work in a normal cake tin.


  • 225g butter
  • 450g golden caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 350g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 350g Tesco’s Lemon yoghurt 
  • 1 lemon – zest and juice
  • 1 tablespoon of mixed peel finely chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 160 c.
  2. Grease the bundt pan with melted butter and dust with flour – this will help you see if you haven’t greased any spots.
  3. Cream the butter (at room temperature) and sugar until pale and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. 
  5. In a separate bowl, measure and sieve out the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  6. Add the yoghurt, lemon juice and zest into the creamed ingredients and mix well.
  7. Sift in the flour in two halves. Mix this slowly until all the flour has disappeared. Don’t over mix.
  8. Pour the mix into a greased and floured tin.
  9. Bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. I turn it around after 35 minutes to make sure it’s evenly cooked.
  10. The cake will pull away from the edge of the tin when it is ready.
  11. Leave the cake to cool fully before removing from the tin.
  12. I decorated the cake with icing once cool.

Happy Baking x
