Organic olive oil (for coating the pan)
Organic AP flour (for coating the pan)
11/2 cups organic AP flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¾ teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1 cup coconut or regular organic sugar, or a combo
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest (1-2 lemons)
1/4 cup lemon juice
¾ cup organic whole milk Greek, soy, or coconut yogurt
½ cup organic olive oil
2 large organic eggs
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Coat a loaf pan (8 1/2x 41/4) or a round cake pan with olive oil. Dust with flour and tap out any excess in the sink.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt.
In another bowl, whisk together yogurt, olive oil, eggs, vanilla, lemon zest, lemon juice, and sugar.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix gently; just enough to blend. Don’t over mix.
Pour the batter into the pan.
Bake for 50-55 minutes until it is golden brown and the tester comes out clean.
Let it cool. Slice a piece and eat it as is, or sprinkle some powder sugar and/or top with berries, or with a scoop of your favorite ice cream. Enjoy!
