I had quite a bit of leftovers in my fridge so in true bakingaddict style, I decided to make a cake! This is a really quick and simple recipe with great results. I had oranges and lemons leftover from making my Valencia Orange and lemon Victoria Sponge Cake and some yoghurt that I bought to make a smoothie but never got round to it. I'd eaten some of it but couldn't eat the whole pot as there was quite a lot of it! It's a mix all in one recipe and the result is a delicious, moist and citrusy cake.
The second challenge is the no waste food challenge hosted by Kate from Turquoise Lemons where the theme for June is leftovers.
170g self raising flour
150ml fat free yoghurt
150ml sunflower oil
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
zest of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (optional)
zest of 1 orange (optional)
Preheat the oven to 180C.
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients until well incorporated (or you can use a food processor).
Pour into a suitable cake tin and bake for about 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Slice and enjoy.
You can make a lemon glaze icing with icing sugar and fresh lemon juice if you wish.
