      Grate the zest and squeeze the juice from the lemons; you should have 6 tbsp juice. Cream together the butter and 3/4 cup sugar, and the zest in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.

      Whisk the flours and the baking powder together to eliminate any lumps. Stir into the butter mixture, followed by the yogurt and 2 tbsp of the lemon juice.

      Spread in the pan. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the center springs back when pressed.

      Meanwhile, stir the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and 4 tbsp lemon juice in a saucepan over low heat to dissolve the sugar. Cool.

    • 6

      Transfer the cake to a wire rack. Pierce the cake all over with a skewer and drizzle the syrup on top. Cool for 30 minutes. Invert onto the rack, remove the pan, peel off the paper, and cool completely.
