Natural Awakenings Dallas -Fort Worth Metroplex Edition


Lemon Cake

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 ½ tsp kosher salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
1 ¼ cups Pompeian Light Taste Olive Oil
1 ¼ cups whole milk
3 large eggs
1 ½ Tbsp grated lemon zest
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
¼ cup Limoncello
Optional garnishes: powdered sugar, Meyer lemon zest,
dried sweetened lemon rings

Heat the oven to 350° F. Oil an 8” x 12” x 2”-inch pan with Pompeian Light Taste Olive Oil and line the bottom with parchment paper. In a bowl, whisk the flour, sugars, salt, baking soda and powder. In another bowl, whisk the Pompeian Light Taste Olive Oil, milk, eggs, Meyer lemon zest, juice, and Limoncello. Add the dry ingredients; whisk until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 60 – 75 minutes, until the top is golden and a cake tester comes
out clean. Transfer the cake to a rack and let cool for 30 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the pan, invert the cake onto the rack and let cool completely, 2 hours. Sprinkle with
powdered sugar and lemon zest right before serving.
