Gâteau au Yaourt Recipe

Indulge in the delightful simplicity of this classic French yogurt cake. Moist, tender, and subtly sweet, it’s perfect for any occasion, whether enjoyed with a cup of tea or as a light dessert.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the yogurt, sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just incorporated. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it out evenly.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Once cooled, slice and serve as is, or dust with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness. Enjoy!
