A Piece of Cake: Gâteau au Yaourt

Mais oui, I have written about my favorite city many times. Along the way, I read a fantastic book which reminded me of French Yogurt Cake, an easy and pleasing dessert, oh my.

yogurt cake

2 tubs plain whole-milk yogurt
2 eggs
1 or 2 tubs sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
1 tsp vanilla essence
Just under 1 tub of vegetable oil
4 tubs plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 containers of frozen berries (or 1 tub mini chocolate chips and 1 tub raisins)
Crème fraîche
Powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Coat a loaf pan or 9″ round cake pan with cooking spray or oil.

In a large mixing bowl, gently combine the yogurt, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and oil.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour and baking powder.

Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, stir gently until just combined.

You may now add the chocolate chips and raisins or berries.

Scoop it all into your baking pan, bake for 35-45 minutes or until golden and the cake springs up when touched (or when a toothpick/knife inserted is pulled out clean).

Let it cool on a rack.

Dust with powdered sugar and serve with a dollop of Crème fraîche.
