EVOO, Lime And Yoghurt Cake
My sister blesses me every year with enormous bags of limes…without a doubt my favourite citrus of all…and this is the first recipe I turn to on those occasions. It is an Autumn ritual! This sturdy but moist Lime Cake is just like a pair of sensible shoes, not that attractive, but really do the job when required. It is delicious.
Hoping you love…it is part of our What's For Dessert ebook, which is free to Insiders, and is in the middle of a facelift...watch this space. Bigger, better coming soon! (But this cake couldn't get any better, really!)
