I love cake.

I had a craving for cake today.  So, I made a yogurt cake.  It’s such an easy cake to make if you have lots of yogurt to use up.  Here’s what I used:

  • 1 cup (250 grams) any flavoured yogurt (I used the homemade yogurt that I made in the Instant Pot)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (I used cake & pastry flour)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

First, preheat the oven to 350F and grease an 8-inch cake pan (I used a springform pan).  In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer on medium speed, lightly beat eggs (approximately 30 seconds) add oil, sugar and yogurt, beat for 1 minute until smooth.

Add flour and baking powder and beat until well combined approximately another minute.


Pour into greased cake pan and bake 35-40 minutes or until tested done (when toothpick or knife inserted in cake comes out clean).


You can sprinkle with powdered sugar once cool, if you like.

Do you love cake?  What sort of cake do you like the most?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Happy baking!
