How to Make a Cake Using Fruit Yoghurt - A Tasty Light Cake

Updated on October 4, 2011

Everone Likes a Nice Light Cake

This is an exceptionally nice Madeira type afternoon tea cake with a subtle and unusual taste that comes from the fruit.

The taste of the fruit will depend and vary slightly with the type and texture of the yoghurt that you use. It is also a diet friendly type of cake as you can use the low fat yoghurt without affecting the outcome.

We have made it with Strawberry Yoghurt, and that worked like a dream, the flavours that to my mind would work the best would be:-

Banana, Strawberry, Apricot, Peach and most probably the best of all must defiantly be Granadilla especially if it has a high fruit pulp content.

This is Quite Easy For Teenagers to Follow

Fruit Yoghurt Cake


1 x 175ml fruit yoghurt

3 x 175ml self raising flour

1 x 175ml sugar

1 x 175ml oil

3 extra large eggs

½ teaspoon salt

Method Part 1

Empty the yoghurt into a medium sized mixing bowl, then wash and carefully dry the yoghurt container, as this becomes the measuring cup for the rest of the ingredients.


Set the oven to 180 degrees Celsius

Grease a large bread pan or a round baking pan of 22cm diameter with butter or margarine or spray and cook. We used a well greased Springform Baking Pan.

Measure self raising flour and place into large mixing bowl

Measure sugar and salt and add to the flour

Mix the dry ingredients for a minute to combine the ingredients

Measure out the oil and add to the bowl with the yoghurt

Break the eggs and add to the bowl containing the wet ingredients

With a mixer blend the wet ingredients until well combined

While mixing the dry ingredients, add the contents of the wet bowl slowly and mix well until all the ingredients have combined

Pour the cake mixture into the baking pan of choice

Place the pan into the preheated oven and bake for 45 to 60 minutes

Test the readiness with test pen after 45 minutes

Remove and let it rest for 5 minutes before removing from the baking pan

Cool down until room temperature serve with your favourite tea or coffee.

      RB Brown would not work so well, use a liquid sweetner that is safer

      Rodney, is there any replacement for sugar? I assume it's processed, how about brown sugar. Thanks

      Constant, strangly enought there is a frosting, and behold it is a low fat cream cheese frosting.

      Countrywoman, I too have to watch my weight, but this frosting is well worth the effort of burning off some extra calories.

      Watch out for the hub on the magic frosting, soon on the Hub Pages.

      Rodney, this sounds delicious. Really! But it must have frosting... it must!! I can't help it!!! A delicious cake with no frosting is just wrong...

      Perhaps a cream cheese frosting?

      Thanks for dropping by and leaving this comment. Use the low fat Yoghurt it is less fattening that way.
