Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease a Bundt tin or a 22cm round baking tin. Using a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil and sugar until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is light and creamy. Add the vanilla essence and mix in the flour. Fold in the yoghurt and pour the batter into the prepared tin. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Leave to cool 5 minutes in the tin before turning out on a wired rack to cool completely. Dust with icing sugar.
