Ingredients

  • 1 cup any flavour yogurt** (I find flavoured regular natural yogurt to be the best / room temperature ) (250 grams)
  • 3 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (112 grams)
  • 3/4 cup sugar (154.50 grams)
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (225 grams)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • powdered sugar

BLUEBERRY SAUCE

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees (180° celcius). Grease an 8 inch cake 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). When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.**I find flavoured regular yogurt to be the best, in the video I used Strawberry.
    ** Depending on the flavour you can always top with this Blueberry Sauce.

BLUEBERRY SAUCE

  • In a medium pot mix together berries, sugar, cornstarch,  water and lemon juice, bring to a boil then lower heat and simmer until desired thickness. Pour into a bowl, let cool completely and or refrigerate.
