HOW TO MAKE A HEALTHY YOGURT CAKE

HOW TO MAKE A HEALTHY YOGURT CAKE

Thinking hard what to bake this weekend, am torn between baking a cake or bread. At the moment, I only have few cups of natural yogurt in the refrigerator.

Decided to bake this Amazing Yogurt Cake that was ultra moist and a snap to make. The yogurt not only cut down the fat used but also moisten the cake.

In case you don't have a plain yogurt, flavored ones work just fine. This Amazing Yogurt Cake can be customized in many ways like adding a cup of diced blueberries, raspberries, strawberries or other fruits as well.

I use canola oil for this recipe. You can use almond oil, peanut oil or any vegetable oil or even replace oil with melted butter.

Why it is called "amazing"? Simply because it uses staple ingredients from the kitchen and made without a mixer but using a whisk yet it produces a moist, tender and scrumptious treat!

Yogurt contains live cultures called probiotics, which support digestion and the absorption of essential nutrients. If you are allergic to dairy you can substitute with almond milk.
