Aromatic lemon cake with ginger and cinnamon. You will love it!

When the weather gets cold and cloudy, it’s time for a delicious and aromatic cake. I always prepare one with my girls and we enjoy it in front of the fireplace, with a cup of hot tea. Try the following recipe and you will love it. The smell is incredible. 


350g. Farina Flour (self-raising flour)

400g. Sugar

200g. Strained Yoghurt

200g. Butter at room temperature

4 eggs

Zest of 1 medium lemon

1/2 medium lemon juice 

1teaspoon cinnamon

1teaspoon ginger


-First, beat the butter with a hand mixer, until it becomes smooth.

-Next, pour the sugar and beat it to make an even mixture.

-Gradually add the eggs, cinnamon, ginger, lemon zest, lemon juice and then the yogurt.

-Finally, add the flour, sieving it and mix with a spatula until it is well mixed.

-Pour the mixture into a non-stick cake tin, smooth the top and bake on the middle shelf, in the air, at 356 degrees (Fahrenheit) for 50 minutes to an 1 hour.

At the end, insert a skewer into the center of the cake – it should come out clean and dry. That way you will know the cake is ready!

Let it get cold for 15 minutes before serving it.
