Easy Yogurt Cake, a healthy and delicious snack made with your favourite flavour of Greek Yogurt. Greek yoghurt is a great ingredient for baking. It helps keep baked goods moist and fluffy while giving them a subtle tanginess that makes them extra delicious. The sweet greek yoghurt lemon bread can be eaten alone or with a glaze. You can make a simple vanilla bean glaze and top it with unsweetened coconut flakes.
You can also make a lemon glaze and poke holes in the bread to let the simple syrup seep through it. To make this cake, simply combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix or whisk the eggs, sugar and lemon until pale and fluffy. Add the yoghurt, oil and vanilla extract, and mix well.
Add the dry ingredients, gently mixing with a wooden spoon, being careful not to over mix. Pour the batter into a loaf pan, coated with cooking spray or oil, and bake in a 350 degrees F oven for about one hour or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. While this cake is amazing by itself, preferably served with coffee or you can also make a passion fruit yoghurt glaze.
