Light Yogurt Lemon Cake

What are the man ingredients?

Eggs – This isn’t a vegan cake, and you will need 4 regular eggs.
Sweetener – I chose coconut sugar, you can choose your favorite healthiest granulated sugar option.
Yogurt – You can choose a good quality greek style or plain lactose-free yogurt (sugar-free). I’m lactose intolerance so I’m always choosing lactose-free products.
Cornflour – You can choose regular cornflour. Cornflour will help to get the cake firm.
Lemon – This ingredient will give the cake a specific fresh lemon taste, you can skip this ingredient if you don’t like the taste of lemon.
Baking powder – You can choose regular baking powder, this will help the cake to bake better and get the best consistency.
