I love Greek Yogurt! Not the nonfat kind – it has to be at least 2% or Whole Milk version for my liking – to get the creamy taste and texture. If you use the creamier version you won’t need to add too much sugar, to make up for the lack of fat. That’s just my little opinion. This Greek Yogurt Blueberry and Lemon Cake was very much inspired by  this  recipe: http://juliasalbum.com/2014/07/blueberry-greek-yogurt-cake/ . I made a few minor alterations – for example I added lemon, added more vanilla and a couple of other changes. Anyway, this cake is super easy to make and comes out extremely moist and delicious thanks to the Greek Yogurt. I try to use organic ingredients as much as possible, the better your ingredients, the better the end result.

I hope you enjoy this cake as much as I did! If you want even more lemony flavor – add a tablespoon of lemon juice to your wet ingredients. Raspberries would also work very well in this recipe. Or – if you prefer – just lemon and no berries. You can definitely play around with this simple recipe.

      Hi Simon!

      So glad that you loved the cake! Also thrilled, as a fellow European (a Swede living in California), to have a British fan!!! I watch Escape to the Country on YouTube almost daily – for a taste of the British life.

      The cake is so delicious and moist from the Greek Yogurt. I have several recipes using this star ingredient!
