Gâteau au Yaourt

Pamela Druckerman
Yogurt Cake from Bringing Up Bébé by Pamela Druckerman
Course cake, Dessert
Cuisine French
Servings 8 slices


  • 2 6 oz. containers of plain, whole-milk yogurt (use the empty containers to measure the other ingredients)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 containers sugar (or just one, depending on how sweet you like things–I used one, and I found it sweet enough)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Just under one container vegetable oil
  • 4 containers flour
  • tsps baking powder
  • crème fraîche (optional)
  • frozen berries or chocolate chips (optional–I used about 5 oz. of chocolate chips)


  • Preheat oven to 375°F
  • Use vegetable oil to grease a 9-inch round cake pan or loaf pan.
  • Gently combine the yogurt, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and oil.
  • Separately, mix together the flour and baking powder.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Be sure not to over mix.
  • If you like, add in berries, chocolate chips, or any other flavoring.
  • Bake for 35 minutes. Bake for 5 more if the cake doesn't pass the knife test. It should be almost crispy on the outside and springy on the inside.
