  • Add each egg one by one while still mixing.
  • Add the Greek yoghurt and mix until combined.

Place into oven. After 50 minutes, check if the cake is cooked by inserting a skewer or knife into the centre of the sponge. If the instrument is coated in any wet mixture, return to the oven for 10 mins more, then check again. 


Once cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 15 mins. After this stage, remove the cake from the tin and allow to cool completely.


Mix the icing sugar with water and drizzle over the Bundt cake. For a extra special touch, add fresh Thyme leaves.
