🍰 Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Cake Recipe 🍋
Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Cake
You will need:
- 2 cups gluten-free flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 3 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- Gluten-free powdered sugar for dusting
- First, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). This is the perfect temperature for baking this cake, as it allows it to rise and brown nicely without burning. Grease a 9-inch cake pan with butter or a non-stick spray to prevent the cake from sticking.
- In a large bowl, combine the gluten-free flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk these dry ingredients together to ensure they are well combined and there are no lumps. This will help your cake to rise evenly and have a smooth texture.
- In another bowl, beat the softened butter until it's creamy and light. This is an important step as it incorporates air into the butter, making your cake light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, followed by the yogurt, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Mix these ingredients well until they are fully incorporated. The yogurt and lemon will give your cake a tangy flavor that pairs perfectly with the sweet blueberries.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can make your cake dense. The batter should be thick but pourable.
- Gently fold in the fresh blueberries. Be gentle to prevent the blueberries from bursting and turning your batter purple. The blueberries will sink into the cake as it bakes, creating pockets of juicy flavor.
- Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. This is the best way to check if your cake is done.
- Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes. This allows it to firm up and makes it easier to remove from the pan. Then transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely. This prevents the bottom of the cake from becoming soggy from the heat of the pan.
- Just before serving, dust the cake with a generous amount of gluten-free powdered sugar. This adds an extra touch of sweetness and makes the cake look even more appealing.
This cake is best served on the day it's made, but it can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. You can also freeze it for up to 3 months. Just make sure to dust it with the powdered sugar just before serving, not before freezing.
