A Light, Moist Lemon Yogurt Cake (Fluffy and Easy) is what all summer dreams are made up of !!!
If there is one thing that I crave the most or something that I cannot go without for long, is a Lemon Cake.
It’s like my worst kept secret between friends/family and if I see one in a bakery…if well made, then that’s definitely the first thing I order.
So Hello My Dear Friend today we are talking about all things that lead us to this delicious – Moist lemon yogurt cake !!
It’s been a long time since I shared a cake recipe and this one is a Keeper for Sure.
It’s also known as Healthy Lemon Yogurt Cake or Greek Yogurt Lemon Cake. This Moist Lemon Yogurt Cake is extremely easy to make and can be served at any meal or party because of its light lemony flavors.
Infact, this cake was the very first recipe that I ever made and I can still remember the sweet smell from the oven and the kitchen smelling heavenly!!!!
Off-course the added advantage of licking the leftover cake batter from spatula cannot be ever forgotten 😉
Now, when it comes to cake, everyone has their favorite and for me, it’s this Moist Lemon Yogurt Cake (Fluffy and Easy)
The Answer is Fresh Lemon Juice, Yogurt, and Olive Oil
The combination of these 3 ingredients with flour and a few other ingredients, make this cake absolutely heavenly and super moist.
I like to make this cake especially for brunch/picnic as can you just imagine sitting on the beach, with sand in your toes and biting into this piece of yum….It’s Blissful !!!
This cake is especially meant to be made in the season of spring-summer when you get fresh Meyer lemons or fresh lemons from your garden or local farmers market.
I insist that ‘Please use Fresh Lemon Juice’ for the cake rather than the packaged one.
We did use a combination of Eggs-Lemon to give this cake an extra airy/light and moist feel and taste.
Simply use vegan yogurt and skip the eggs.
Egg Substitute: 2 Tbsp of White Vinegar.
Also, please be extra careful when removing the cake from the mold as because of its light and moist texture, it may break really easily.
So always keep an extra plate or help around when transferring it to a plate or serving dish.
Hence, it’s recommended that you let the cake cool completely before slicing it.
As many of you have asked me regarding serving suggestion for this Moist Lemon Yogurt Cake so here you go
(These options work best when the cake is completely cooled down) :
Sprinkle with a light dusting of powdered sugar.
Add fresh berries or serve along with chopped berries.
Serve with sugared lemons.
Add a light layer of cream (since the cake is super moist, adding too much cream will break it).
Serve with Vanilla Ice-Cream.
Simply serve as is.
Sprinkle some Honey on Top along with Berries (Seriously THIS is EVERYTHING – Try it)
For me and everyone at home, we usually just sprinkle this Moist Lemon Yogurt Cake with light powdered sugar.
As always enjoy this piece of yum and I look forward to hearing from you. You can tag pictures of my recipes made by you at #easycookingwithmolly
