Easter Recipe: Polish Lime and Basil Bundt Cake

Struggling to find inspiration for your Easter baking? How about exploring something fresh, sweet, savoury, and utterly delicious with this Easter recipe.

Bundt cakes hold a special place in Polish Easter traditions, celebrated for their delightful taste and easy preparation. What we love most about this cake is its incredible versatility, allowing for multiple flavour combinations.

While lemon and poppy seed is a timeless classic, we’re trying out this lime and basil rendition from our pastry chef, Margo.

Wishing you a very happy Easter!


210g self-raising flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
200g sugar
180g Greek yoghurt
3 eggs
120ml olive oil
40g basil leaves, minced
1 tbsp lime juice
Zest of 4 limes


  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (combi mode 100% steam)

2. Thoroughly butter a Bundt pan, dust it with flour, and then lightly spray with oil spray to prevent sticking

3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, Greek yogurt, and olive oil and mix well

4. Add the sugar, self-raising flour, baking powder, minced basil leaves, lime juice, and lime zest into the wet mixture. Whisk gently until all ingredients are just combined. Be careful not to overmix

5. Pour the batter into the prepared Bundt pan, spreading it evenly

6. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 35 minutes on low fan. Check that it’s done by inserting a skewer into the centre of the cake—if it comes out clean, the cake is ready. If not, continue baking until done

7. Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 20 minutes 

8. After cooling, carefully invert the Bundt pan to release the cake onto a wire rack. Allow it to cool completely

9. Optionally, prepare a glaze by mixing 60ml of water with 250g of icing sugar until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake

10. Serve and enjoy!
