Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups low fat Greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp orange zest finely zested
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Prepare a springform pan by buttering the sides of the pan and using a parchment circle on the bottom (butter the parchment as well)
  • Mix together the flour, sea salt, baking powder and baking soda in mixing bowl
  • In a mixing bowl add the sugar, Greek yogurt, olive oil, orange juice, orange zest and vanilla. Make sure the ingredients are well blended and creamy.
  • Add in the dry ingredients mixing just enough until well blended with no visible lumps
  • Pour the batter into your prepared springform pan and place in your preheated oven on the middle rack.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes. The cake should have a rich golden brown color, if it looks as though the cake is getting too brown you can cover it with foil.
  • The cake is done when a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack, then remove the outside of the springform pan, allowing to cool for 15 more minutes.
  • Remove the bottom and parchment and serve warm with homemade whipped cream and fresh berries.
