Whole Lemon Blender Cake


This cake boasts a wonderfully simple preparation yet is rich in vibrant citrus lemon essence.

HEALTHY whole lemon blender cake

After the tremendous success of our Whole Orange Blender Cake, we couldn’t resist crafting a lemon counterpart. In this rendition, I embraced a more conventional approach, employing all-purpose flour and cane sugar.

The result is an extraordinary cake, bursting with robust lemon flavors and characterized by a dense texture achieved through the blending process.

For optimum taste, a Meyer’s Lemon is recommended, though a regular lemon yields fantastic results.

In the absence of Vanilla Greek Yogurt, a simple substitution involves using regular Greek yogurt with added vanilla extract and a touch more sugar blended in.
