Lemon & Poppyseed Loaf

Our friend Gabi came over to the house this morning with a lemon loaf (an old family recipe) and we all had a slice at the Edible Newsroom. It looked so beautiful we have to capture a photo and share the recipe with you all. Gabi says the yoghurt helps to keep these cakes deliciously moist.

Enjoy as is with a cuppa, warm with butter, or you can top with a lovely lemon drizzle icing.
