French Yogurt Cake

Course Dessert

Author Sarah Mir


  • 1 ½ cup Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ½ cup Oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • ¾ cup Yogurt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prep your pan by greasing it and dusting it with flour. You can use a bundt tin, a loaf pan, a square tin.(Note: A loaf tin will take the longest to bake)
  • Combine the sugar and all the wet ingredients (oil, eggs, yogurt, vanilla extract) in a large bowl with a whisk
  • Mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium size bowl and sift into the wet ingredients for an extra tender cake 
  • Gently mix just until well combined
  • Bake just until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean, this takes me about 30 minutes in a bundt cake pan. Let cool for ten minutes in the pan then invert onto a platter to cool completely.


For a fun twist zest in a tbsp of your favourite citrus and serve drizzled with a citrus marmalade warmed and poured over top.
