I found this recipe on www.chocolate& so that is where the credit lies. It is so easy to make, tastes delicious and you can use any type of yoghurt you like. I like strawberry or raspberry as you end up with a nice pink cake. Also it's easy to scale up for larger quantities, just stick to the right ratio. I've made some lovely individual muffins with the recipe too.


Serves: 6-8

  • 2 eggs
  • 250 millilitres whole milk
  • 250 millilitres unsweetened plain yogurt
  • 250 millilitres sugar
  • 125 millilitres vegetable oil
  • 500 millilitres all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or extract)
  • 1 tablespoon light rum

  • In another bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder.
  • Add the flour mixture into the yogurt mixture, and blend together - don't overwork the dough.
