  • a mixing bowl
  • a hand mixer
  • round cake tin 20 cm
  • baking paper


  • 100 g Lurpak lighter olive oil spread
  • 100 g lactose free natural yogurt
  • 10 tbsp sweetener I used one with aspartame
  • 4 eggs
  • 175 g gluten free flour
  • 250 g mashed potato
  • Zest of 3 lemons
  • 2 tsp baking powder gluten free if you are a Coeliac
  • For drizzle: 4 tbsp sweetener
  • juice of 1 lemon


  • Preheat the oven to 180C or 160C fan.
  • Butter a 20 cm baking round cake tin and line it with a baking paper. In the end, butter on top of the paper as well to make sure that the cake won't stick.
  • Using a hand mixer, beat the sweetener and Lurpak spread until fluffy. Then add the effs, one by one, beating after each addition.
  • Mix in the flour, cold mashed potato (make it fluffy with a fork first), lemon zest and a baking powder.
  • Place the batter in the tin, levelling it. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean (it depends on your oven).
  • Cool it for 10 minutes, then turn it upside down. In a bowl, mix the sweetener with the lemon juice until dissolved. Using a fork, make lots of little holes in the top of the cake. Drizzle the sweet and zesty juice over the cake. Serve!
