Finally, it’s the first season of the Great British Bake Off that I don’t have to keep mum on social media about since it’s showing in the US (Netflix) as well as in the UK on Channel 4. Not that I have taken advantage, though, because I’d hate to be a spoiler for anyone who has missed an episode.

I will say this, I was super excited to see this week’s show when the first challenge was cake with a cultured dairy product, like yogurt or buttermilk. I LOVE baking with both. Somehow, even without the addition of butter, baked goods with yogurt, buttermilk or even sour cream, taste buttery to me. And the cultures are healthy for us to eat. Win-win.

Lemon Honey Olive Oil Bundt
This recipe is adapted from one on the now-defunct blog, Sixteen Beans, which I found quoted on several other sites. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the original post, even on the Wayback Machine, but if you have a few hours to go down an internet rabbit hole, the author, Kyleen has some beautiful recipes and photographs on there. She’s very talented and I only wish I knew what she was doing now!

Ingredients
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups or 368g plain whole milk yogurt
2/3 cup or 156ml olive oil, plus extra for greasing the pan
1 cup or 240ml (340g) honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Zest from 1 large lemon
2 1/2 cups or 312g flour, plus extra for flouring the pan
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

For the glaze:
1/4 cup or 60ml honey
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter

Method
Preheat your oven to 350°F or 180°C and prepare a 10-cup Bundt pan by greasing and flouring it.

In a large bowl whisk eggs lightly. Add yogurt, olive oil, honey, vanilla, lemon juice and zest, whisking till combined.



In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and ginger.

Sift the dry ingredients into the other bowl and whisk till just smooth and no lumps remain – do not over whisk.





Pour the batter into your prepared Bundt pan. (In case you are curious, mine is the
Nordic Ware Chrysanthemum Bundt Pan - apparently discontinued now.)
Bake for 60-70 minutes, until a tester comes out clean or your internal temperature reads 210°F or 98.8°C on an instant read thermometer. Cover the cake with foil if the top is getting too dark toward the end. I should have covered mine sooner!



Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes; remove from pan and let cool completely.



To make the glaze, bring honey, brown sugar, and butter to low boil in a pan.

Cook 1 minute or until the glaze thickens slightly. Drizzle over cooled cake.
