  • 1 1/2 cups (190g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (120g) plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Zest of 1 lemon (optional)
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch (23cm) round cake pan or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Prepare Wet Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, sugar, and vegetable oil. Mix until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract and lemon zest, if using.
  4. Combine Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the batter should be smooth and slightly thick.
  5. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The cake should be golden brown and spring back when lightly touched.
  6. Cool and Serve: Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, dust with powdered sugar if desired.
  7. Enjoy: Slice and serve the cake plain or with a dollop of whipped cream or fresh berries for an extra special treat!

Enjoy your deliciously soft and fluffy yogurt cake!
