Greek Yogurt Olive Oil Cake

Share

In this simple and delicious Greek Yogurt Olive Oil Cake, olive oil imparts fruity flavor and keeps the cake extremely moist and tender. So if you have a top-quality mild-flavored extra-virgin olive oil, this is the time to use it. 

The recipe is easy and needs just one bowl and a whisk to make the batter. Start with the dry ingredients and then whisk in the olive oil, Greek yogurt, and eggs. Add in the lemon juice and lemon zest for extra flavor and stir until completely combined and there are no lumps of flour. Pour the batter into an oiled 9-inch cake pan and bake until golden brown. Serve warm, dusted with confectioners’ sugar and dolloped with Greek yogurt if desired. This is my new favorite snacking cake to enjoy on a cold winter day. 

To make the Greek Yogurt Olive Oil Cake, you will need the following ingredients:
