Mini Lemon Yogurt Cakes 迷你柠檬酸奶蛋糕
Since I had bought a huge bag of lemons recently, here is another easy to follow recipe with lemon fragrant and can be sent into the oven after a few minutes of mixing. These simple plain Mini Lemon Yogurt Cakes are not only cute in mini sizes, they’re tender and soft too. You can feel the crusty top with each bite especially when served warm. In fact the mini cake will go in 2 bites! Great to serve as tea cake at any time of the day.
These mini lemon yogurt cakes can be also baked in small cupcake liners if you don’t have the flower mould. 小蛋糕不用摸具也可以放入小纸杯烘烤。

Hi Ann, do we need to grease the pan prior to pouring the batter in pls ? Thanks
Hi Sarah, yes, you need to grease the muffin pan and dust with flour. Already mentioned in step one or you can place a cupcake liner inside the muffin pan.
Oh sorry missed that out. Thanks for your reply.
Can l use a loaf tin to bake this yoghurt lemon cake? Do l need to adjust the baking time?
Hi Charlottle, yes you can use a small loaf tin and bake about 40 mins or longer according to your own oven.
