  3. Using electric beaters, beat egg yolks and remaining white sugar in another medium bowl until thick and pale. Continue beating while gradually adding olive oil. Add yoghurt, both lemon and orange rind and juice, and a pinch of salt and beat to combine. At low speed, add flour and beat just until combined. Gently fold egg white mixture into flour mixture, in 3 additions, until just combined.
