1 person made this

Fluffy cake infused with lemony limoncello liqueur is the perfect ending to an Italian dinner. Great example of a poke cake.


Serves: 8 

  • Cake
  • cooking spray
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup limoncello liqueur
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt, to taste
  • Glaze
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar
  • 45ml limoncello liqueur

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Cake: Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Prepare an 20cm cake tin with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together the yogurt, eggs, canola oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar and limoncello in a large bowl. In a separate large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Gently stir the dry ingredients into the wet. Do not over mix or the cake will be tough. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until top is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
  4. Glaze: Stir the icing sugar and limoncello together in a small bowl until smooth.
  5. To Serve: Poke small holes all over the top of the still-warm cake with a fork or toothpick. Spoon the glaze over the cake and spread with the back of a spoon. The glaze will seep into the cake and add moisture.
