Heck as a Mum, I am grateful for anytime that I get to sit quietly & savour a cup of tea & a slice of cake!
In our house that usually means after the rugrats have gone to bed. That is if I have enough energy left after the craziness of the day :)
So bake this cake & hide it away until you can sit down & savour a bit of me time :)
It is lovely & decadent with a rich crumb, but the subtle lemon flavour with the slight tang from the greek yoghurt make this cake much lighter & more delicate than you would expect. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a nice cup of earl grey tea – just saying :)
This cake yet again is super easy to make, do I bake any other way??
Healthy Lemon Pound Cake
- 1/2 c coconut sugar
- 1 c greek yoghurt
- 1/2 c butter
- 3 eggs
- zest & juice of two lemons
- 1 1/2 c spelt flour
- 2 t baking powder
- 1/2 t salt
In a food processor, mixer or thermomix mix the coconut sugar & butter until well creamed. Add in the yoghurt, eggs, lemon juice & zest mixing to combine. Add in the remaining ingredients & blend until just mixed. Pour into a well greased or lined loaf pan.
Bake for 45 – 50 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.
