Limoncello Cake Recipe


  • 1 cup plain yogurt (I used my homemade greek yogurt!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs lemon zest
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup
  • 4 Tbsp limoncello liqueur
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3/4 cup confectioner sugar
  • 3 Tbs limoncello liqueur


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease a 9" round baking pan with cooking spray
  3. Whisk together yogurt, eggs, canola oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, and limoncello liqueur in a large bowl
  4. In a separate large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt
  5. Gently stir/whisk the dry ingredients into the wet. Don't over mix or the cake will be tough - the batter can be a tad bit lumpy!
  6. Pour batter into prepared pan
  7. Bake until top is lightly golden, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 33-38 minutes. Don't over bake!
  8. Remove from oven, allow to cool for 15 minutes
  9. Sift powdered sugar and 3 Tbs limoncello liqueur together in a small bowl until smooth
  10. Poke holes all over the still warm cake - use a toothpick or a fork
  11. Slowly spoon the glaze over the warm cake, as otherwise it will pool into the middle!
  12. Spread with a spoon if necessary
