  • 4 medium-sized eggs
  • 100 grams (⅔ cup) icing sugar
  • 100 grams (½ cup) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 250 grams (1 cup) Greek yogurt
  • 130 grams (¾ cup) corn oil
  • 2 medium-sized lemons juiced and zested juice should be about 80 ml
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 300 grams (3 + ⅙ cups) oat flour


  • Preheat the oven to 160 / 320°F.
  • Grease a loaf pan (9 x 5-inch 23 x 13) with cooking spray or butter.
  • In a mixing bowl combine together with a whisk the eggs, both types of sugar, and vanilla extract. Stir vigorously until eggs get a little bit foamy.
  • Then mix in the oil. Once the oil is fully incorporated, mix in the Greek yogurt.
  • Add the lemon juice and zest as well as the baking soda and baking powder. Again give it a vigorous stir with the whisk.
  • Then add the oat flour in batches. Once fully incorporated transfer the cake batter to the loaf pan.
  • Bake for about 1 hour. If your oven is too strong and the cake gets too much color you may drop the temperature to 150°C / 302°F. Insert a toothpick in the center of the cake and see if it comes out clean.
