French Yogurt Cake Recipe


– 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour – 2 tsp baking powder – pinch of salt – 1 cup sugar – Grated zest of 1 lemon – 1/2 cup plain whole milk yogurt – 3 large egg – 1/4 tsp vanilla extract – 1/2 cup flavorless oil (canola, grapeseed)


Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, combine the sugar and lemon zest together, using your fingers to rub the zest into the sugar until the sugar is moist and fragrant.

Add the yogurt and vanilla extract and whisk until combined.

ow add the flour, baking powder, and salt; whisk just until batter is smooth.

Use a rubber spatula to fold the oil into the batter; the cake batter will look glossy once you’re done.

Pour the batter into a greased 1 lb. loaf pan and bake the cake for approximately 40 to 50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

Flip the cake out onto a wire cooling rack and allow it to cool before serving.
