This is a quick and easy pound cake recipe. I bake it in an 8 or 9 inch round or square cake pan, instead of a loaf pan, to cut baking time in half. Of course, if you prefer a "loaf", bake it for almost twice the baking time as a smaller pan.


  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup plain, lemon, or vanilla yogurt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-2 Tbsp. lemon juice


Preheat oven or convection to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 - 9 inch round or square baking pan with cooking spray.

In a medium sized bowl, place the flour, sugar, and baking powder and whisk. Add the yogurt and lemon juice to the bowl and let sit a minute or so. Then add the eggs and whisk everything together until well incorporated.


Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a light golden top.

I serve this in squares with strawberry/rhubarb sauce spooned over it with a dollop of whipped cream or a splash or two of light cream.

Note: Because this pound cake has no butter, the finished cake will be a bit sticky, but it is a healthier version than making it with a lot of butter and eggs.

Servings: 9-12
Prep Time: 10-15 Minutes

It is very moist, and you can add your own flavors, icing or glaze.




Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter and sugar in large bowl until light and creamy. Add eggs one at a time mixing well after each. Add lemon extract mix well. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt.

Add half of the flour and milk to butter mixture, beat until smooth and creamy. Repeat the above with balance of flour & milk. Pour batter into a greased tube pan. Bake for 1 hour (DO NOT open oven door before the hour is up) After hour is up, test cake until it is done. Prick cake on top and bottom, with a fork and brush on the lemon juice. Serves 16 to 18

Here's a homemade pound cake recipe made with lots of butter and lemon. Try topping this with a light whipped topping or even vanilla ice cream.
