Rosie’s One Pot Yoghurt Cake


Have you wanted to make a cake but felt certain pangs of guilt because of the calories? Well I am sure you have heard of yoghurt cakes, that’s where the yoghurt provides the moisture and stops the cake from being crumbly. It’s also healthier because it’s lower in fat and calories. It can even lend a certain sharpness to the cake, depending on the flavour and type of yoghurt used.

The yoghurt keeps the calories down so the addition of fruit to make it interesting is a great idea. Want to know more?

I found a great recipe on Rosie’s Home Kitchen, a wonderful cookiery blog run by the lovely Rosie, who lives in France with her family. What makes this recipe great is the fact that all measurements are done by the pot – the pot of yoghurt.

So lets dive in to Rosie’s recipe!

What you will need to make Rosie’s One Pot Yoghurt Cake

  • 1 x 125g pot of Yoghurt
    Then use the yoghurt pot to measure…
  • 2 pots sugar
  • 3 pots flour
  • 1 pot sunflower oil
  • 1 packet levure chimique (1 tsp baking powder)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 apples
  • half pot chopped nuts (optional)

Empty one pot of plain yoghurt into a mixing bowl then rinse and dry the plastic pot. Add sugar, eggs and oil and mix. Chop up the apples and nuts, add to mix and stir. Pour in to a greased baking tin and bake at 180c for about 40 minutes
