Strawberry and yoghurt cake
This delicious strawberry and yoghurt cake is a real winner.

200g polenta

200g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

275g caster sugar

110g butter, melted

500g natural yoghurt

200ml warm water

600g strawberries, chopped icing sugar, for dusting

Preheat oven to 170°C / 325°F / Gas Mark 3. Line and grease a 20cm spring-form tin.

Place dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine and make a well in the centre.

Add the butter, 300g yoghurt and water and beat until well blended. Stir through half the strawberries and pour into the tin.

Bake for two hours or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Remove from oven to a cooling rack and stand for 15 minutes before removing from tin.

Once completely cool, top with remaining yoghurt and strawberries.

Dust with icing sugar before serving.
