Back to one of our favorite “easy” cakes: the French “gateau au yaourt” or yogurt cake! SWEETTABLESCAPES has made so many of those..and yet we never tire of the ease and simplicity of this French classic. It is truly the ultimate “everyday” cake that you can whip up for your kids at a moment’s notice, especially here, when all you need are staples in every kitchen: yogurt, apples and raisins. This recipe comes from “Simple comme un gateau au yaourt” (As simple as a yogurt cake) of course! We’ve made several others, here and here…
Remember that the magic trick for these “yogurt cake” recipes is that you use the yogurt container to measure most of the ingredients, making for a quick process with minimal cleaning! If you don’t have a similar yogurt cup, just measure 1/2 cup. It works too!
1 jar yogurt
2 jars sugar
1 jar vegetable oil
3 jars flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 golden apples
Preheat oven to 350F
In a large bowl, stir 1 jar yogurt with 4 eggs until thoroughly blended.
Add 2 jars sugar and mix
Add 1 jar oil and blend well.
Add 3 jars flour and 1 tsp baking powder. Mix thoroughly.
Wash the apples, peel them and cut them into small cubes. Add them to the mixture with the raisins. Mix.
Butter a loaf pan or several smaller pans or paper pans. Fill with the batter and bake:
45 minutes for a large loaf, 30 for smaller pans, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle, comes out clean.
