  • 6 large egg yolks at room temperature
  • ½ cup greek yogurt at room temperature
  • cup honey separated in half
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 3 large egg whites at room temperature
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 glass pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a small bowl, combine ⅓ cup of honey with the egg yolks, the yogurt and the vanilla. Whisk it together until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, sift together ¾ cup sugar, flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix to combine.
  • Add the butter to the flour mixture and mix with an electric mixer until butter is incorporated and the batter looks crumbly. Add the other ⅓ cup honey to the mixture. Mix on medium speed for 3 minutes until the batter lightens.
  • Add the egg yolk mixture ½ at a time, scraping the sides between each half.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the egg whites on high until they form soft peaks. Add in the 2 tbsp of sugar and beat on high until stiff peaks form. Mix the egg whites gently into the batter, folding until you can’t see the whites anymore.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. Top with Honey Cream Cheese Frosting. Enjoy!
