Easy Yogurt Cake
This is an easy yogurt cake that uses the yogurt container to measure all of the ingredients. It's ready in under an hour and the perfect not-too-sweet snack or breakfast treat. It's known in France as "Gâteau au Yaourt" and is typically the first cake that French children learn how to make. My son attends a French school and has made this with his classmates.
A 5 oz yogurt container is equivalent to 3/4 cup. If you would like to make this cake but do not have a 5 oz container, use the following measurements: 3/4 cup plain yogurt; 1 1/2 cups white sugar; 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon oil; 1 1/3 cups flour.
Try adding your favorite flavors or additions. A great one is 1/2 yogurt container mini chocolate chips! You could use lemon yogurt and add lemon zest for a lemon yogurt cake. The possibilities are endless! If you use a flavored and sweetened yogurt instead of plain, consider reducing the added sugar to 1 yogurt container.
