Lime Olive Oil Greek Yoghurt Cake

July 21, 2011 4 Comments
When I first saw this cake on Peter’s blog, Souvlaki For the Soul, I knew I had to bake it. The next weekend we celebrated my brother’s birthday and I promised to bake something delicious for him and my family. This cake turned out an absolute hit, everybody loved it!

I usually don’t print out recipes (like this one) I collect day by day, but I save them on Pinterest in my “I want to make” board. I have 395 pins in this board now and I think I made 5% of the saved recipes… and the number increases everyday because I always find something delicious, yummie I would love to try. Sometimes I just want to stay at home and start cooking and baking all the recipes. Do you feel the same?

Lime Olive Oil Greek Yoghurt Cake


– 1 cup white spelt flour
– 3/4 cup whole wheat spelt flour
– 1 cup (300 g) Greek yoghurt
– 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
– 1/3 cup cane sugar
– 1/4 cup lime juice (freshly squeezed)
– 1 lime’s zest
– 2 organic eggs
– 2 teaspoons baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat the oven to 180C (325F). In a bowl mix together the dry ingredients: flours, baking powder and salt. In another separate bowl whisk the eggs with the cane sugar, then add yoghurt, olive oil, lime juice and zest. Pour the wet ingredients mixture into the dry one using a spatula mix until combine. Grease with olive oil a 22 cm springform baking tin and pour the dough into it and bake for about 40-50 minutes at 180C (325F). The cake is ready when the top is golden brown and the skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Once cooled, sprinkle the top with powder sugar and lime zest.
