Ingredients

For the cake

  • Softened butter 175g
  • Golden caster sugar 175g
  • Lemon curd 2-3 tbsp
  • Self-raising flour 200g
  • Greek yogurt 100g, plus extra to serve
  • Eggs 3
  • Lemon 1, zested
  • Blueberries 90g, plus extra to serve

To decorate

  • Icing sugar 140g, sifted
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Edible flowers to decorate, such as Dianthus or Violas

Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 150°C/Fan 130°C/ Gas Mark 2. Line a 2lb loaf tin with baking parchment, leaving extra on the sides to help remove the cake. Place the butter, sugar, lemon curd, flour, yogurt, eggs and three- quarters of the lemon zest into a mixing bowl. Mix until the batter comes together. Transfer half of the mixture into the tin.

  • Step 2

    Sprinkle half of the blueberries into the tin. Transfer the rest of the batter into the tin and scatter over the rest of the blueberries. Bake for 65-75 minutes until a skewer poked into the middle comes out clean. Leave to cool.

  • Step 3

    Remove the baking parchment and place the loaf onto a serving plate. Place the icing sugar into a bowl and stir in enough of the lemon juice to make a smooth icing. Spread over the top of the cake, sprinkle on the remaining zest and edible flowers, if using.

  • Step 4

    Serve sliced with yogurt and blueberries.
