Lemon & Olive Oil Cake with Greek Yoghurt

Lemon & Olive Oil Cake

Introducing the exquisite Lemon and Olive Oil Cake, thoughtfully designed to serve 6-8 guests, making it an ideal addition to your culinary offerings.

Served in a 9-inch cake tin, the Lemon and Olive Oil Cake is a harmonious blend of the richness of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the vibrant zing of fresh lemons. For an added touch of indulgence, we recommend serving this cake with a dollop of creamy Greek yoghurt. This recipe requires a pinch of salt for that added flavour, but if you’re looking at ways of reducing sodium in your dishes then don’t forget to take a look at using Smart Salt.

This cake recipe is developed by The Hungry Guy and is a perfectly light and refreshing dessert.
