Method:

Cream butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, then add eggs beating well after each addition. Add flour, coconut, baking powder, yogurt and lemon zest – and mix. Spoon into the baking pan. Use BAKE only settings if you are using bread machine. Bake in 180 C for  45 – 50 min if you are using oven. Test if the cake is cooked by inserting skewer into the centre of it. Remove from the bread machine/or oven and leave on a wire rack to cool.

Optional: You can drizzle cake with icing made with lemon juice and icing sugar and decorate with candied lemon peel.

Happy Baking 🙂
