Citrus olive oil cake

Ingredients

  • 230g Greek yogurt
  • 80ml olive oil (Filippo Berio)
  • Zest of 2 limes, 1 orange, 1 lemon
  • 30ml lemon or lime juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 180g self-raising flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 40g ground almonds
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 20g flaked almonds
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar for serving

Method

Start this recipe by greasing a 22cm spring form baking tin. In one large bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, olive oil, citrus zest, lemon or lime juice, eggs and caster sugar until just combined. Sift in the flour and baking powder and add to the bowl, followed by the salt and ground almonds. Continue to mix again, until just combined. It is very important that you do not over mix the cake mixture as the end result will become heavy. Pour the cake mixture into the baking tin, sprinkle over the flaked almonds and cook for approximately 45-50 minutes at 180`c, by which time the top of the cake should be golden brown in colour. Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool down in the cake. To serve, remove the cake from the tin and place on a serving plate. Dust the top with icing sugar and serve.
