Ingredients

4 eggs

3/4 cup Greek yogurt 

1 1/2 cups sugar

3 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup almond flour

3/4 cup canola oil

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon almond extract

Zest of 1/2 an orange

1/4 cup almonds, toasted

Powder sugar for dusting

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F

In a bowl whisk together the eggs, greek yogurt, and sugar until smooth

To that add the baking powder, salt, almond flour, canola oil, almond extract, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth

In an 8 in cake pan liberally spray with a nonstick cooking spray and line the bottom with parchment. Spray the parchment as well

Pour in the batter and put into the oven to bake for 40-45 minutes until cooked through

Once cooked let it cool slightly before turning out onto a plate. You might need to run a knife around the edges to loosen the cake

Slice, serve, and fall in love!
