7 Yogurt Pots Cake


This is a very simple and quite popular recipe in Italy. You can bake it with your children because all you need to measure the ingredients is a clean yogurt pot. In total you will add 7 pots of ingredients:

  • 3 pots of pastry flour
  • 2 pots of sugar
  • 1 pot of natural yogurt
  • 1 pot of sunflower oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest (optional)
  • icing sugar to decorate

Start by mixing the eggs and the sugar until you get a creamy texture. Add all the other ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes at 180°C (356°F).

The basic recipe is quite tasty on itself, but you can also make some little changes:

  • use flavored yogurt such as vanilla, coconut, lemon, blackcurrant instead of natural yogurt
  • replace the pot of yogurt with 1 pot of buttermilk (added softness guaranteed!)
  • add 2 sliced apples and some grounded cinnamon to the mixture
  • add 1 pot of chocolate drops 

Try it and let me know in the comments!

Bon appetit!

    1. Hi Linda!
      Yogurt pots are usually 125g, so I guess one cup will be too much. Unless you wanna make a big cake and you have a baking pan large enough. In this case try adding 2 teaspoons of baking powder.
      Let me know if you try this!
