Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 60 minutes
Ingredients (for 1 loaf) :

    - 225g plain flour
    - 2 tsp baking powder
    - 1/2 tsp salt
    - 175ml lemon yogurt (plain will work too)
    - 200g golden caster sugar
    - 3 large eggs
    - Zest of 1 lemon
    - 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    - 150g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
    - 150g cherries pitted and quartered

    For the topping:
    - 100g unsalted butter, room temperature
    - 200g icing sugar
    - 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    - 80g lemon curd
    - 1 tbsp milk


Grease and line a standard loaf pan and preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

In a medium bowl mix the flour, baking powder and salt together. In a large bowl mix together until combined the yogurt, sugar, eggs, lemon zest, vanilla extract and butter.

Sift the flour mixture over the liquid ingredients and gently fold together (dont beat or the cake will be tough) until the dry ingredients are incorporated.

Lightly dust the cherries with about 1/2 tbsp flour, which will help the cherries from sinking in the cake, then lightly mix into the batter. Pour into the prepared loaf pan and lightly level out.

Bake for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
