  • 1 1/4 cups + 2 tablespoons cake flour* (180 grams)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa (25 grams)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon plain yogurt** (75 grams)
  • 1/4 cup milk (I use 2%) (60 grams)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams)
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used corn oil) (85 grams)
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips (dark or milk or mixed) mixed with 1 teaspoon of flour (60 grams)

*If you don't have cake flour substitute with 1 cup + 3 tablespoons all purpose flour and 3 tablespoons of cornstarch.

    **You can substitute with Greek yogurt but use only 1/4 cup (60 grams)


      • Pre heat oven to 350F (180C). Grease and flour a 9 inch (23 cm) Bundt / Tube Pan.
      • Sift together the flour (corn starch if substituting), cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
      • In a small bowl mix together the yogurt and milk. Set aside.
      • In a large bowl beat together the egg and yolks, sugar, vanilla and sugar until light approximately 5 minutes, then slowly add the oil and beat to combine. Alternately add the dry ingredients with the yogurt/milk mixture. Beat to combine 1 minute.
      • Pour the batter into the prepared pan, sprinkle with chocolate chips (mixed with 1 teaspoon of flour) and bake for approximately 35-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool then remove from pan. Dust with powdered sugar if desired before serving. Enjoy!
