Easy Yogurt Cake, a healthy and delicious Snack or Dessert Cake Recipe made with your favourite flavor of Greek Yogurt. Change your Yogurt Flavor, change your Cake!
I happened on this Easy Yogurt Cake Recipe almost 20 years ago, from a woman I encountered in the local supermarket, buying yogurt no less.
My Italian was far from perfect at the time (still isn’t perfect I might add), but a cake recipe I understood. In Italy, yogurt usually comes in single servings of 125 grams.
So the Easy Yogurt Cake was as follows, 2 containers of yogurt (containers are 125 grams each), 1 container of oil, 2 containers of sugar and 3 containers of flour, 3 eggs and 1 package of baking powder, now how easy is that?
Baking powder in Italy also comes in individual packages, took me awhile to get used to that. I always have visions of emptying this package and that package into my North American baking tools to get the cups and teaspoon measures that I was so used to.
And of course converting grams and kilos at the beginning was a nightmare too.

So thanks to my supermarket friend this Yogurt Cake turned out to be a tasty and ever so easy. It has also become my eldest daughter’s favourite cake. It makes the perfect snack or even breakfast cake. Healthy and delicious come together in this recipe.
And it can also be made with any flavour of yogurt, I find that greek yogurt, 0 fat (yes 0 fat!) is the best to use, it makes this Easy Yogurt Cake super moist and delicious.
So choose your favourite fruit greek yogurt or regular fruit yogurt and turn on the oven. This cake is also a perfect Easy Summer Dessert Recipe. Enjoy!
