Preparing the Cake
  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease a Bundt cake tin or spray it with baking spray to prevent sticking.
  2. Beat Butter and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, beat the room temperature Kerrygold Irish butter with the icing sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  3. Grate Lemon Zest: Wash the lemon well and grate the peel to obtain the zest. Add the zest to the butter and sugar mixture.
  4. Add Remaining Ingredients: Add the flour, eggs, yogurt, cream cheese, and baking powder to the bowl. Mix well to form a homogeneous dough. Ensure there are no lumps, and the batter is smooth.
Baking the Cake
  1. Pour into Tin: Pour the batter into the prepared Bundt cake tin, spreading it evenly.
  2. Bake: Place the tin on the middle rack of the preheated oven. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
