Easy and Delicious Yogurt Cake

Loved this cake for teatime! Served With a dollop of yoghurt on top and alternately with chunks of pineapple and pineapple juice, or with raspberries. Delicious! This is an easy yogurt cake that uses the yogurt container to measure all of the ingredients. It’s ready in under an hour and the perfect not too sweet snack or breakfast treat. It’s known in France as Gâteau au Yaourt and is typically the first cake that French children learn how to make. My niece attends a French school and has made this with his classmates.



Easy and Delicious Yogurt Cake


  • 1 (5 ounce) container plain yogurt
  • 1/2 yogurt container vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 yogurt containers white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 yogurt containers all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt




Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch round springform cake pan.

Empty the yogurt into a mixing bowl. Measure the oil, using the yogurt container, and add to the yogurt. Set aside. Rinse yogurt container and dry with paper towel to continue using it as a measuring tool.

Add eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract to the yogurt-oil mixture. Beat well until thoroughly combined. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir until just combined; batter will be thick. Pour into the prepared cake pan and spread to level the top.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.
