Lemon Olive Oil Cake
Super simple and delicious, this cake has a bright lemon flavor and moist crumb due to the addition of our Meyer Lemon olive oil.
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup whole milk yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup OLIVE & VINE Meyer Lemon olive oil
2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup stone ground cornmeal (regular cornmeal will work here too)
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Grease a 9"x9" baking pan with lemon olive oil. In a large bowl combine the sugar, eggs, yogurt, vanilla, and lemon olive oil. Whisk until pale and well combined. In a separate bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together and add to the wet ingredients.
Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes in the center of the oven until golden brown, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool for 15 minutes in the pan, and invert on to a rack and cool fully before serving.
