French Yogurt Cake that will fit your calorie budget

Protein 6.5g – Carbohydrate -39g – Fat 7.5 – Calories 250 per slice – Makes 10 slices.



  • 225g Plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Large pinch of salt
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest (depending on taste)
  • 300g Sainsbury’s 0% Fat Greek yogurt
  • 72g cup olive oil
  • 5 eggs whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 170°C. Line a standard (8 1/2×4 1/4″) loaf tin with greaseproof paper. Whisk flour,baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Using your fingers, rub sugar with 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest in a large bowl until sugar is moist. Add 0% fat Greek yogurt, olive oil, egg whites, and vanilla extract; whisk to blend. Fold in dry ingredients to blend. Pour batter into lined pan; smooth top. Bake until top of cake is golden brown and a tester inserted into center comes out clean, 40-55 minutes. Let cake cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Invert onto rack; let cool completely. Can be made 3 days ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.

TIP: I like to cut the slices at the end slightly fatter to compensate for the height being shorter.
