Meyer Lemon Yogurt Cake


I LOVED this! My boys weren’t sure about the peel being included. I actually ate 2 pieces – it’s been a tough week! 😆

Hubby was certain you’d be able to taste the EVOO, but no. 🫒

Makes an 8×8 and was super yummy. May not be everyone’s thing, but I like it. 😁

Meyer lemons are supposedly hard to find in the store. Thankfully, some of us are blessed w/ a tree on premises.

TIPS: I purposely tried to keep this recipe as low as possible in added sugar for myself. For a sweeter cake, add additional granulated sugar, to taste, and 1 tsp pure vanilla extract stirred into yogurt before adding into food processor OR sub vanilla Greek yogurt. You can also dust the finished product w/ powdered sugar, to taste. This would also be pretty w/ some lemon zest on top of the powdered sugar!

Meyer Lemon Yogurt Cake Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Liberally spray an 8″ x 8″ baking dish w/ EVOO. Don’t forget to spray up the sides, too!
  3. Slice 1 large Meyer lemon into 6 wedges then remove any remaining stem and seeds.
  4. Add to a large food processor, in this order: 6 trimmed and de-seeded Meyer lemon wedges, 3 cracked eggs, 1 3/4 cups sifted unbleached all-purpose flour, 3 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt, 1/3 cup EVOO, 1/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt, and 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar.
  5. Pulse until just smooth. You want that peel broken up, but try not to over-blend!
  6. Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
  7. Bake 50 mins, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 20 mins, then transfer to a wire rack to fully cool.
