LEMON YOGURT OLIVE OIL CAKE

Recipe adapted from Joyfoodly

What Do We Need?

6 oz yogurt (plain), not greek
1 lemon
1 cups of sugar
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup olive oil

How Do We Make It?

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Zest lemon. In a medium sized bowl, rub zest of the lemon into the sugar with your hands until incorporated and set aside. This is your dry ingredients bowl.

  3. Juice lemon in a separate medium sized bowl. This is your wet ingredients bowl.

  4. Mix the remaining dry ingredients and lemon sugar together and set aside. 

  5. Mix the wet ingredients together (except for the olive oil).

  6. Combine the wet and dry ingredients into one bowl, slowly adding the dry ingredients to the wet ones. Mix until combined. 

  7. Fold the olive oil into this mixture gradually, not all at once, and use light, long turns of your spatula to fully mix in the oil each time you add a little more. The batter should have a nice sheen.

  8. Pour the batter into a greased 5x10 loaf pan. Bake uncovered for 50 to 55 minutes. Let cool at least 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
