Recipe Ingredients for Low- fat Lemon Yoghurt Cake

1 1/2 cup White Flour, Unbleached
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt, Table
240 grams Natural Yoghurt
1 cup Sugars, Granulated
2 small Egg, Whole
3 large Egg, White
5 teaspoon Juice and some zest
0.33 cup Vegetable Oil, Canola
110 grams Confectioners Sugar
1 Juice of one lemon

Recipe Directions for Low- fat Lemon Yoghurt Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease and flour an 8½ by 4¼ by 2½-inch loaf pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper.

  2. Measure the flour (scoop and level), baking powder, and salt into a small bowl and whisk until combined. In a large bowl, mix together the yogurt, sugar, eggs, lemon zest, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and slowly whisk together. Fold the vegetable oil into the batter until it?s all incorporated. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until a cake tester placed in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

  3. When the cake is done, allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes.

  4. For the glaze, combine the confectioners? sugar and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (or 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of Limoncello). If the glaze is still too thick, continue adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (or Limoncello) until it?s runny enough to pour.

  5. Carefully place on the cake a baking rack over a sheet pan or a sheet of parchment paper. While the cake is still warm (but not hot!), pour the glaze over, allowing it to drip down the sides.
