French Yogurt Cake

Posted on March 18, 2020 by Anne Milneck | 0 comments

This traditional cake is taught by French grandmothers to their grandchildren. It's a simple recipe that young, novice cooks can easily navigate. Adorable yogurt "pots" are the measuring device. It's a one-bowl, stir-and-bake cake that's simply delicious. We've included a darling illustration from French Studio for a great visual guide. We've also listed both the traditional French "yogurt pot" measuring technique as well as our conversion into measuring cup quantities. 


Using Traditional French Yogurt Pot Measurements
Ingredients:

1 pot plain or vanilla full-fat yogurt
2 pots sugar
1 pot Point Coupee Pecan Oil
3 eggs
1 pinch salt
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Almond Extract
3 pots flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

Directions:
Grease a 9-inch round baking pan with butter or non-stick spray. Dust with flour. We also lined our pan with parchment. Preheat oven to 325°F. In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, sugar, eggs, salt and extracts until well combined. Add the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Mix well. Scrape into prepared pan and bake for 25-35 minutes or until the cake springs back in the center and a toothpick inserted in center comes out with just a few moist crumbs.

2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
