  • 1 cup | 150 gr rice flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup | 70ml olive oil extra virgin

  • Icing sugar to sprinkle on top optional


  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF.
  • In a large bowl whisk the sugar with the oil for 2 minutes. Add the eggs (or flax eggs - see notes) until the batter starts to bubble.
  • Add in the yogurt, lemon zest and vanilla extract and combine.
  • In another bowl, combine the rice flour, almonds, baking powder and salt and slowly add to the batter, beating until completely blended.
  • Pour the batter into a 0,5kg/1lb loaf tin (25cm*11cm*7,5cm / 10inch*9inch*4,5inch) and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and leave it to cool in the tin for 10 minutes.
  • Unmold, sprinkle with icing sugar (optional) and serve.


Low FODMAP diet: it's advised to eat up to 1/3 of the cake, as the tolerated amount of almonds is 10 and the recipe calls for 30.
