Greek yogurt lemon cake with lemon syrup

1.Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease a 1.5-litre (6-cup) 24cm (top measurement) ring cake pan.
2.Using an electric mixer, beat butter and 1 cup of the sugar in a bowl until light and creamy. Add eggs, one by one, beating well after each addition. Fold in 1 cup of the yoghurt, then the flour, half the zest and 1/4 cup of the juice until combined.
3.Pour mixture into prepared pan; level surface. Bake 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted at centre comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate.
4.In a small saucepan, combine remaining sugar, remaining zest and remaining juice over low heat. Cook and stir 2 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat. Simmer 4 minutes or until syrup has reduced and thickened slightly.
5.Pour warm syrup over warm cake. Sprinkle with zest strips. Place honey and remaining yoghurt in a bowl; stir to combine. Serve cake with yoghurt mixture.

When you have extra lemons, freeze juice in ice-cube trays for later use. You’ll need about 4 lemons.
