Honey Lemon Cake with Almond Flour

This is a wonderful cake to enjoy by itself or with some lovely tea. I really liked eating this cake because it’s so soft and moist. It’s also sweetened naturally with honey instead of only using sugar. I would rate this cake as one of the best cakes I’ve made! I used Greek yogurt flavored with real fruit instead of plain yogurt. Then I topped it with more yogurt and fruit before serving. It came out delicious and there was not a crumb left! 😊


Yield: 9 inch round cake
Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt flavored with real fruit
  • 1 ½ cup cake flour
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F with racks in the middle. Spray oil on the bottom and sides of a 9 inch cake pan.
  2. In an electric mixer, mix butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add eggs and mix until well combined.
  3. Add honey, vanilla extract, lemon juice, lemon zest, and yogurt and mix until well combined.
  4. Mix together cake flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Slowly add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients while mixing at the lowest speed.
  5. Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until it’s golden brown. A toothpick should come out clean when inserted in the middle of the cake. Let it cool completely before serving.
