Gluten Free Strawberry Yogurt Cake with Lemon + Coconut Sugar Topping

Recipe adapted from Diane Morrisey's recipe


Topping:

2 tablespoons coconut sugar

2 tablespoons melted butter

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon gluten free flour blend (I used Bob Redmill's 1 to 1 Blend)


Cake:

Zest from 1 lemon

1/2 cup light brown sugar, unpacked

1 1/2 cups gluten free flour blend (I used Bob Redmill's 1 to 1 Blend)

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup olive oil

1 egg, room temperature

1/3 milk (or dairy alternative)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 heaping tablespoons plain greek yogurt

1 cup chopped strawberries


Preheat your oven to 375F. Line a 8x8 pan with parchment paper + set a side.


In a small bowl, mix together the topping ingredients - coconut sugar, butter, flour, + cinnamon. Set a side.


Using a large mixing bowl, add the lemon zest + sugar in a bowl. Combine with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Add in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon + salt. Mix to combine.


In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients - olive oil, egg, vanilla extract, lemon juice + milk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry + stir until just combined. Don't over mix the batter. Fold in the greek yogurt + the chopped strawberries.


Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the topping over the top.


Bake for 25 minutes or until the center is fully cooked. Remove from the oven + remove from the baking pan. Let cool on a wire rack.


Enjoy!
