1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Zest of 2 lemons
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
In another bowl, beat the eggs until light and fluffy. Gradually add the olive oil while continuing to beat.
Mix in the yogurt, lemon juice, and lemon zest until smooth.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
