This simple moist butter cake is flavored with lemon zest, lemon curd and lemon extract for some extra zing. A lovely cake from Baking Joy, it brings sunshine into my kitchen with its gorgeous golden crumb and the smell of fresh citrus peel. I have not been devoting much time for baking lately so I have quite a bit of catching up to do with all the recipes I have bookmarked in my recipe books or saved under ‘My Favorites’ tab since the start of this year. I hope to be able to reschedule my baking timetable as I settle down in Gynae & Obs so that I have more baking experiments and posts to share with you on a regular basis.



175 g soft unsalted butter

175 g golden caster sugar

3 eggs, room temperature

3 tablespoons lemon curd

Zest of 1 medium lemon

100ml plain yoghurt

1 teaspoon lemon extract

200 g all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder


  • Preheat oven to 170o C. Line a 9-inch loaf tin with baking paper or butter and lightly flour pan.

  • Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy with a mixer. Mix in 1 tablespoon flour.

  • Add eggs, yogurt, lemon curd, zest and lemon extract and mix well. Sift flour and baking powder.

  • Take care not to over mix the batter. Spoon batter into prepared tin and bake for around 1 hour.

  • Cake is done when a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Leave cake to cool in pan.
