1 9-inch cake


  • cooking spray

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 4 ½ tablespoons butter, softened

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 (6 ounce) containers lemon-flavored yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray.

  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a medium mixing bowl.

  3. Combine sugar and butter in another bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth and well combined. Add eggs and vanilla extract; beat well. Add the flour mixture a little bit at a time, alternating with the lemon yogurt. Make sure to stir well after each addition. Stir in lemon zest.

  4. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the prepared pan. Spread evenly; cover with 1 cup blueberries. Spread remaining batter over the blueberries. Place remaining blueberries on top of the batter.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out dry, about 50 minutes.
