Honey and Yogurt Olive Oil Cake
A little bit sweet and a little savory, this cake will shake up your breakfast routine. And by replacing sugar with honey and using fresh herbs from the garden, it also provides an extra nutritional boost.
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 8-12


  • (1 cup) Whole Greek Yogurt
  • (2/3 cup, plus more for greasing pan) Olive oil
  • (2/3 cup) Honey
  • (1 tbsp.) Fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • (1 tsp.) Lemon zest, finely grated
  • (3) Eggs
  • (1 1/2 cups) All-purpose flour
  • (1/2 tsp.) Baking powder
  • (1/2 tsp.) Baking soda
  • (1/4 tsp.) Salt


  1. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 325°F.
  2. Grease a 9-inch round cake pan or springform pan lightly with oil. Line the bottom with parchment paper and grease the paper if using a cake pan.
  3. Whisk together the yogurt, olive oil, honey, thyme, and lemon zest in a large bowl. Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking well after each addition. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir with a rubber spatula until the batter is almost smooth with just a few small lumps, but do not overmix.
  4. Transfer the batter to the cake pan, and use a spatula to spread it out evenly. Bake until the top is lightly browned and a tester comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes
  5. Transfer the cake to a cooling rack and let it cool for 10 minutes before removing it from the pan. Run a knife around the pan to loosen. If using a springform pan, unclasp the sides. Otherwise, flip the cake onto a plate and flip it back onto the rack or serving plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.
