Equipment

  • 20cm / 8 inch springform tin

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F. Line the bottom of an 8 inch / 20cm springform pan with parchment paper and grease the sides with olive oil.
  • Blend the eggs with an electric mixer until they are doubled in size, pale and frothy. This takes about 2 minutes.
  • Add the sweetener, olive oil, yoghurt, lemon juice and zest and continue mixing until well-combined.
  • Sir together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. Then add to the wet ingredients and blend until you have a smooth batter. Last, stir in the lemon thyme leaves with a spatula.
  • Fill into the prepared springform tin and bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Check the cake after 40 minutes. If it has browned sufficiently, loosely place aluminium foil over the top to prevent burning.
  • Let the cake cool completely before releasing the springform.
  • Serve with a dollop of Greek yoghurt (option to stir in a little powdered sweetener or sugar free syrup) and a few leaves of lemon thyme. Optional, but delicious: brush the top of the cake with a little more olive oil!

Notes

2.3g net carbs per slice (without toppings). Makes 12 slices. 
Use a flavourful, deep-coloured extra virgin olive oil for this recipe. 
I used an 8 inch / 20 cm springform tin. If you use a 9 inch / 23cm cake pan or a rectangular cake pan, the baking time will reduce to about 40 minutes. 
Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
