Low Carb Lemon Cake
This tangy lemon cake is made with freshly squeezed lemon zest, lemon juice, and full fat greek yogurt. I decided to incorporate two of those into the delicious glaze. Considering the family’s love for lemons, this was a complete hit!
I know everyone was spectacle of trying a “healthy” and “low carb” lemon cake, but after the first bite, they couldn’t stop! This loaf is bursting with juicy lemon-y flavor, and melt-in-your-mouth goodness.
I promise you that after the first bite, you’ll find out whether you have any self discipline, or not in my case.
