Afternoon tea madeira cake

This cake is flavoured delicately with orange zest and is perfectly light and fluffy. The yoghurt gives the cake more depth and allows it to stay lovely and moist.

  3. Pour in one egg at a time, mixing well between each addition.
  4. Add the sifted flour and fold in gently.
  5. Grate in the orange zest and add the yoghurt.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and place in the oven for about 35-40 mins or until a skewer comes out clean.
