Yogurt Cake with Apples and Raisins

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!

You’ll need:

1 jar yogurt

4 eggs

2 jars sugar

1 jar vegetable oil

3 jars flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 golden apples

70g raisins


Preheat oven to 350F

In a large bowl, stir 1 jar yogurt with 4 eggs until thoroughly blended.IMG_0025 IMG_0026

Butter a loaf pan or several smaller pans or paper pans. Fill with the batter IMG_0031and bake:

45 minutes for a large loaf, 30 for smaller pans, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle, comes out clean.IMG_0032
