  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (Greek yogurt works well)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 lemon (optional)
  • Pinch of salt


Preheat and Prepare:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9-inch round cake pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.

Mix Dry Ingredients:

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and a pinch of salt until well combined.

Combine Wet Ingredients:

  • In another bowl, whisk together the plain yogurt, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. If using, add the lemon zest for an extra burst of flavor.

Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

  • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and gently fold them together using a spatula or wooden spoon until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in a dense cake.

Bake the Cake:

  • Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it out evenly.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean and the top is lightly golden brown.

Cool and Serve:

  • Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
  • Once cooled slightly, carefully transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely.

Optional: Dust with Powdered Sugar:

  • If desired, dust the top of the cooled cake with powdered sugar for a decorative finish.

Slice and Enjoy:

  • Slice the Perfect Fluffy Yogurt Cake into wedges and serve it plain or with your favorite toppings, such as fresh berries, whipped cream, or a dollop of yogurt.

With its tender crumb, subtle sweetness, and irresistible moistness, this Perfect Fluffy Yogurt Cake is sure to become a favorite in your recipe repertoire. Whether enjoyed as a simple dessert or a sweet snack, it's the perfect treat for any occasion!
