  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt, full fat is best
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Grated zest of one lemon
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup canola oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Generously grease a 9 inch round cake pan and line with parchment
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, sugar, eggs, vanilla and zest
  4. Add the flour and baking powder and whisk until combined
  5. Add the oil and, using a rubber spatula, stir until smooth
  6. Transfer batter to your prepared pan and smooth the top with the spatula
  7. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean
  8. Allow to cool on a baking rack for 5-10 minutes then carefully remove the cake from the pan and allow it to cool to room temperature on the rack, right side up
  9. Once cooled, keep cake wrapped in plastic wrap at room temperature for up to 3 days. This cake gets even better as it sits for a day or two!
