A delicious recipe from Michael Arthur, a wonderful health food chef - www.michaelarthurfood.com
175g spelt flour
100g ground almonds
11/2 tsps baking powder
Zest of two lemons and juice of one
140g caster sugar
2 large eggs
1 pot of natural yoghurt
75ml light oil (sunflower or olive)
For the drizzle
85g icing sugar
Juice of one lemon
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Grease, line and flour (with the spelt flour) a loaf tin. In a large bowl mix together the flour, ground almonds, baking powder and lemon zest.
In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, sugar and oil. Add the yoghurt and whisk in gently. Combine the wet and the dry mix, squeeze in the juice of lemon and gently mix.
Spoon into the loaf tin and bake for around 35 minutes, until nice and golden on top and a wooden skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Leave to cool in the tin for around 5 mins and then prick lots of little holes all over the top of the cake. Mix together the icing sugar and the lemon juice and spoon over the top of the cake so that it drizzles into all the little holes - makes the loaf extra lemony. Leave to cool completely before eating.
