Raspberry-Lemon Brunch Cake

Cake:
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup light olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 egg
  • 2 lightly beaten egg whites
  • 1 cup nonfat lemon yogurt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 c. raspberries *see above note about berries
Glaze:
  • lemon juice
  • powdered sugar
  • lemon curd
  • 1/4 c. chopped almonds (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream the sugar, oil, and zest. Add the egg and egg whites and mix completely. Add the yogurt and combine well. Add the vanilla and lemon juice and combine.

Slowly add the flour and the baking powder, stirring until completely blended.

When the batter is smooth, add the raspberries and gently mix until the berries are somewhat blended; do not overmix and break up the berries.

Pour the batter into a greased bundt pan. Place in the oven and bake for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool completely.

For the glaze, mix together the lemon juice, powdered sugar and lemon curd. Drizzle over the cake and sprinkle with chopped almonds, if desired.
