  • 60 g oatmeal flour
  • 120 g yogurt
  • 10 ml lemon juice
  • 1 egg
  • 3 g baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon stevia
  • Zest of 1 lemon

Topping Ingredients:

  • 60 g natural yogurt
  • Stevia to taste
  • 10 ml lemon juice
  • Optional: Vanilla


  1. Mix the Cake Batter: In a bowl, combine the oatmeal flour, yogurt, lemon juice, egg, baking powder, stevia, and lemon zest. Mix until smooth. The batter should have a light and airy consistency, ensuring the cake will be fluffy and moist.
  2. Prepare for Baking: Grease a microwave-safe mold and pour the batter into the mold. This step is crucial to ensure the cake doesn’t stick and retains its shape.
  3. Microwave Cooking: Cook in the microwave for 3 minutes. Alternatively, bake in the oven at 350°F for about 17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The microwave method is quick and efficient, perfect for busy mornings, while the oven method can give a slightly different texture, equally delightful.
  4. Cool and Add Topping: Let the cake cool completely. Meanwhile, prepare the topping by mixing yogurt, stevia, lemon juice, and a touch of vanilla if desired. Spread this mixture over the cooled cake. This step adds a creamy layer that complements the tangy lemon cake.
  5. Finish and Serve: Top with a bit of lemon zest for an extra burst of flavor and serve. The zest not only adds a visual appeal but also intensifies the lemon flavor.
