Yogurt Cake

This Yogurt cake recipe was modified from my grand dad’s original yogurt cake recipe. This cake is my favourite to make when there are no weighing scale or when I need to save the day with a super easy and delicious cake.

It has a rather strong taste in yogurt and olive oil, if you don’t like that look at my genoise recipe.

For 4 people serving,

cooking time: 30 minutes.


– 1 cup of yogurt  or the 25g individual pot

– 2 eggs

– 1 cup/pot of sugar

– 3 cups of flour

– 1/3 cup of olive oil

– 1 pinch of salt

– 1 pack of baking powder

– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Optional: 1 lemon zest, rhum


  1. First turn on your oven at 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Mix in a large bowl the yogurt and sugar.
  3. Incorporate the eggs and then add the flour. Mix it all well to get an homogeneous dough.
  4.  Add the baking powder, olive oil, salt, Rhum and lemon zest without stopping with mixing.
  5. Bake it in the oven for 30 minutes.

I like my yogurt cake with a chocolate cream on top as you can see on the picture.
