Heavenly Simple Yogurt Cake for Every Occasion











Discover the charm of baking with this incredibly moist and flavorful Yogurt Cake - a perfect blend of simplicity and taste for any occasion, ready in just 45 minutes.


Step 1: Preheat Oven and Prepare Pan

Start your baking adventure by preheating the oven to a cozy 350°F (175°C). Then, take a 9-inch springform pan and lightly grease it using baking spray or a dab of oil. Don’t forget to line the bottom with parchment paper. This little preparation step ensures that your cake will release easily, maintaining its perfect shape for presentation.
Pro Tip: Using parchment paper makes cake removal a breeze

Step 2: Mix Wet Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 1 cup of plain yogurt with 1/2 cup olive oil, adding in 1 cup of granulated sugar, 3 large eggs, and a splash of vanilla extract at 2 teaspoons. The goal here is to combine these until they’re just harmonious and gleaming, ready to welcome the dry ingredients. It's all about creating that perfect, smooth base that promises a moist and flavorful cake.
Pro Tip: Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature for best results

Step 3: Incorporate Dry Ingredients

To the bowl of liquid gold, sift in 2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, a quarter teaspoon of salt, and half a teaspoon of ground nutitis bake up perfectly. Folding these components gently ensures a light and fluffy cake, without overworking the batter. It’s this gentle touch that contributes to the cake’s tender crumb.
Pro Tip: Sifting dry ingredients helps to avoid lumps

Step 4: Bake to Golden Perfection

Carefully pour the unified batter into your prepared springform pan and slide it into the center of the preheated oven. Bake it for a golden 50 to 60 minutes. Keep a watchful eye as the cake bakes. If you notice the top getting a touch too golden, lightly cover it with aluminum foil. This cake is a patient one, so give it time. When a cake tester comes out clean, the cake is ready to greet the world. Let it cool for a moment of patience, about 10 minutes, before you remove it from the pan. This cooling period allows the cake to set and makes for easier slicing.
Pro Tip: Cooling in the pan helps the cake to set
