  • Ingredients
  • 360g all-purpose flour
  • 110g almond meal
  • 340g sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Zest of 3 lemons
  • 4 eggs, at room temperature
  • 180g Filippo Berio 100% Italian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 180g Lemon Juice
  • 200g Full-fat Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 50g sugar
  • 60g Lemon Juice
  1. Instructions
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°f / 180°c. Grease a 10-cup capacity bundt pan with baking spray with flour, or spray liberally with baking spray, then dust well with flour, tapping out the excess. Place on a baking sheet.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, almond meal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest. In a second medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, Filippo Berio 100% Italian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil , lemon juice, yoghurt, and vanilla bean paste. Whisk well to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and whisk well to combine, finishing mixing using a rubber spatula to ensure the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated, and there are no dry ingredients left at the bottom of the bowl.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared bundt pan, and place the bundt pan, on the baking sheet, into the oven. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, checking for doneness at 50 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean or with only a few crumbs attached.
  5. Remove the cake from the oven, and allow to stand in the pan for 10 minutes, before turning out onto a wire baking rack. Brush with the lemon syrup while still warm. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature. Leftovers are best stored tightly wrapped or in an airtight container.
  6. Place the lemon juice and syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir to combine, then heat until the sugar has dissolved. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, then simmer for 2 minutes to allow it to reduce slightly. Allow to stand for 5-10 minutes to cool slightly, then brush onto the cake liberally using a pastry brush.
