Keto Lemon Yogurt Cake

This Keto Lemon Yogurt Cake is the ultimate low carb dessert. With only 9 ingredients and less than 3g total carbs, it’s Yogurt Cake recipe worthy of your indulgence.


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup protein isolate, I used ISOPURE
  • 1 cup sweetener, I used LAKANTO
  • 5 tbsp fresh lemon zest (zest from one big lemon)
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup thick full fat yogurt, I used Fage 5%
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 large eggs



  • Mix all dry ingredients (1 Cup Almond Flour, ½ Cup Sweetener, ¼ Cup whey isolate, ½ tbsp baking Powder and 2 tbsp Lemon Zest).
    Mix well until frothy, avoid lumps and set aside.
  • Beat eggs and add yogurt. Beat until combined. Add oil, lemon juice and beat until everything is mixed and a smooth liquid is formed.
  • Now mix wet ingredients to dry and beat everything together. This batter should be smooth without lumps (except zest) and runny.
  • Preheat oven at 350F. Grease your cake pan with butter generously. Pour the batter in pan and Bake the cake for 20 min.
  • Check with toothpick to see if it’s totally cooked. If not cooked at the center, make a shape like your cake pan using aluminum foil and cover the outer circumference or edges where the cake is brown and cooked.
  • Bake cake for another 3-5 min until toothpick comes clean when cake is poked. The center will be tiny bit soft but that’s ok.
  • Bring cake out and let it cool. Once cooled, drizzle with lemon syrup (2 tbsp lemon juice + 3 tbsp powdered sweetener) and let the cake soak up. Drizzle powdered sweetener on top and more lemon zest if you like.
  • The cake is ready to serve.
