Yoghurt and chocolate cake

This is real simple and easy recipe and so yummy to eat.
It is also a great recipe to make with small kids as the single serving yoghurt pot is used as a unit of measurement. This is actually the first baking recipe my grandma taught me.

Here is the list of ingredients you need for a 12 by 26 centimeter mould:
(I use a single 125 gram serving yoghurt pot as a unit of measurement)*
  • 1 pot of plain yoghurt
  • 2 yoghurt pots of sugar
  • 2 yoghurt pots of flour
  • 1/3 yoghurt pot of sunflower oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 packet (11 grams) of baking powder (levure chimique)
  • 1 packet (7.5 grams) of vanilla sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 45 minutes

To start, pre-heat your oven at 175 C (345 F).

While the oven is heating up, add all the ingredients, except the chocolate powder together in a bowl.

Now mix them all together until the batter is smooth.

After that, split your batter in half in two different bowls.

In one of the bowls, add the three tablespoons of chocolate powder and mix it in.

Grease a baking mould with butter (round, rectangular, square ... whichever one you prefer).

Alternatively pour the plain batter and the chocolate batter into the mould.

Bake for about 45 minutes.  Poke the cake with the tip of a knife to check if it is baked ...

Not baked!


And here's the result!

Enjoy ... once the cake has cooled down.

You can also bake this cake without the chocolate ... as you wish ...

Here is how it looks when you slice it:

*Note: It doesn't matter what size of yoghurt pot you use, because all the other measurements will automatically adjust.

  1. Facile à faire, même pour un amateur comme moi. Très bien pour le petit déjeûner.
