Yoghurt Lemon Ribbon Cake

I wanted to bake a colourful cake from many days. So thought of baking this yoghurt lemon cake with a little twist. Divided the batter into four equal parts, added the desired colours to the prepared batter and poured it into a cake tin & baked. Love the colours....:)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup yogurt
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 180 C. Grease a 8x8 inch cake pan with oil.

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk yogurt, 1 cup sugar, eggs, lemon zest, oil, lemon juice and vanilla. Now mix slowly the dry & wet ingredients. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until the skewer placed in the center comes out clean.

If you are in a colourful mood then go ahead divide the batter into 3 or 4 equal parts. Add the desired colours & pour it in a greased cake tin & bake.
