The Family Yogurt Cake Recipe in 4 Easy Steps


1- The first thing to do: in a big bowl, mix 1 plain whole milk yogurt and 4 eggs.
đź’ˇ Note that you just went from 1 to 4.

2- Second step: you will use the empty yogurt cup to measure and add the following ingredients.
đź’ˇ You’ll simply need to count backward to count the number of cups, from 3 to 2, to1, to 1/2.
3 yogurt cups of flour
2 yogurt cups of sugar
1 big teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 yogurt cup of sunflower oil

3- Third but optional step: you can choose to customize this recipe by adding a flavor of your choice to the basic recipe.

đź’ˇ We suggest any of the following combinations:
– two teaspoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of orange blossom water
– or two teaspoons of vanilla sugar and chocolate chips
– or one banana, with some pecan nuts or walnuts (that will make a yummy and moist banana cake!)
– or orange zest and the juice of half of an orange (perfect for tea time!)
– or citrus zests and blueberries (again, perfect for tea time!)
– or a small amount of pumpkin purĂ©e, and a pinch of cinnamon (perfect for Thanksgiving dessert if you need an alternative to the pumpkin pie).

4- Fourth and last step: mix all the ingredients, place in your baking pan, and bake in your oven for about 40min at 350F (180C)

đź’ˇIf you use a muffin-sized baking pan, you may stop after 30min – it may also depend on your oven, so check it out!


And voilĂ ! 1, 2, 3, 4, done! For special occasions, such as birthdays or holiday celebrations, you may add a 5th step: the decoration! Add some icing, fondant, fruits, cake toppers, candles, … and bon appĂ©tit! Enjoy!
