Lemon Yoghurt Cake

Good Afternoon! I made my first batch of Coconut Yoghurt not long ago and it was delicious … my second batch was just ever so slightly runnier than the ‘normal’ consistency and so I decided to use it in a cake and was super excited when it turned out … I retested it again just to check my recipe and I am thrilled to share it with you now. The fresh lemon offers that gorgeous taste in it (SO lucky my Lemon Tree is now just producing fruit) and  because of the Yoghurt it is so beautifully moist …. I LOVE it on its own but also think it would be AMAZING served warm with custard or with a sticky lemon syrup poured on top … will leave that to you to decide! Either way I hope you love it … it is going to be a regular in our home!

Ingredients

1 ½ cups raw almonds (270g)

1 cup coconut yoghurt (270g)

½ cup rapadura (75g)

3 eggs

¼ cup fresh lemon juice (50g)

zest of 1 lemon (approximately 2 heaped tablespoons) ** this can be left out to be more child friendly as my kids don’t love the ‘zest’ taste as much as I do! 

3 tblspns coconut oil (30g)

1 tspn baking powder

pinch salt

¼ cup coconut flour (30g)

Method

Lightly grease a cake tin with oil of choice and preheat oven to 180c.

Turn almonds into ‘almond meal’ by blitzing in your food processor (you can use almond meal and skip this step).

TMX: 15 seconds speed 6

Add all the ingredients to the food processor with the almond meal EXCEPT for the coconut flour and blitz on medium speed for 30-60 seconds until thoroughly combined.

TMX: 30 seconds speed 4

Scrape down the sides then add the coconut flour and blitz again for a further 10-20 seconds.

TMX: 10 seconds speed 4

Pour mixture into prepared cake tin and bake for 40-45 minutes.

Allow to cool in tin for 5 minutes before cooling completely on a wire rack.

Notes

YES you can swap coconut yoghurt for dairy yoghurt depending on intolerances and YES you can swap rapadura for sweetener of your choice!

Enjoy!

Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
Take Care of You,
