Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6
  • 1½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup plain or vanilla yogurt (could also use sour cream)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 5 tsp grated lemon zest
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ⅓ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour your mini bundt cake pan.
  2. Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt into 1 bowl.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the yogurt, the eggs, vanilla, lemon zest, and 1 cup of sugar.
  4. Slowly whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  5. Then, fold the vegetable oil into the batter, making sure it’s all incorporated.
  6. Evenly pour the batter into the greased and floured mini bundt pan. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until a tooth pick placed in the center of the bundt cake comes out clean (or almost clean).
  7. Let sit in the bundt cake for at least 10 minutes on the counter. Then, remove onto baking rack.
  8. Prepare the glaze: stir together the powdered sugar and the lemon juice. If you want a thinner glaze, add more lemon juice.
  9. Drizzle the glaze on top of the cakes. Enjoy!
