This Greek yoghurt, lemon and coconut Bundt cake can be had as a dessert and best enjoyed with a Sauvignon Blanc like Hesketh Bright Young Things available from Dion Wines and Spirits.

Greek Yoghurt, Lemon and Coconut Bundt Cake Recipe


  • 2 eggs
  • 180ml olive oil
  • 280g Bio Food Products Greek Yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 110g of caster sugar
  • 180g of raw honey
  • 80g desiccated coconut
  • 225g spelt flour, sieved
  • 3 tablespoons of baking powder

For the Glaze: 

  • 125g of icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice

For garnish: 

  • 50g of flaked almonds
  • a handful of rose petals


  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees. Mix the eggs, oil, yoghurt, lemon juice, sugar and honey in a big bowl and whisk.
  2. Add dessicated coconut, flour and baking powder and whisk again (it might look lumpy because of the coconut).
  3. Grease a 22cm round bundt tin and pour in the mixture. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool.
  4. Mix the icing sugar with lemon juice to form a thick glaze. Gently pour over the cake allowing it to drip down the sides. Garnish with flaked almonds and rose petals.
