Mediterranean olive oil cake with Greek yogurt and lime


  • 230g Greek yogurt (TOTAL)
  • 80ml olive oil (PREGO)
  • zest of 2 limes
  • 30ml lemon or lime juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 180g self-raising flour
  • 40g ground almonds
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 20g flaked almonds
  • Icing sugar for serving


Start this recipe by greasing a 22cm spring form baking tin. In one large bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, olive oil, lime zest, lemon or lime juice, eggs and caster sugar until just combined. Sift in the flour and baking powder and ad 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 the extra caster sugar and serve.

Suggested accompanying wine: DELICATA Csella Moscato Sweet white wine
