Along with Chicago style popcorn, apple turnovers, and my Grandma’s cookies, my other great weakness is Costco’s Lemon yogurt cake.
Silly, but true!
If it’s in the house, I cannot resist it, and once I start going, I can’t stop. Unfortunately, it’s terribly unhealthy, but that fact was the catalyst for creating a Trim Healthy Mama-friendly Lemon Yogurt Cake that I can enjoy without expansion. 😀
This recipe for Lemon Yogurt Cake is equally moist and lemon-y, but it’s low in carbs, gluten-free, sugar-free, and high in protein. To keep it from being too calorie-dense, I used a combination of almond flour, coconut flour, and golden flaxseed meal instead of almond flour alone. Alternatively, you could use 1 cup of Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend instead of the no-special-ingredient mix.
My kids call this Lemon Yogurt Cake “Costco Cake,” because it really does taste like our bulk store favorite! It’s pound cake-like in texture, but unlike traditional pound cake, it’s harder to over-do it because this version is so high in protein that you’ll feel plenty satisfied after one piece!
This Lemon Yogurt Cake is delicious on its own , but I like it even better with whipped cream and berries for a pretty, easy dessert.
Lemon Yogurt Cake is a Trim Healthy Mama S dessert because it’s a great source of protein, high in healthy fats, and low in carbs.
