Everyday Yogurt Cake :)

Dear Friends :)

Why I am happy is because I made this cake for my brother's birthday.It was so soft,moist and of course very very light in texture and an awesome taste.When my daughter sliced the cake,i saw lots of pores and air holes inside the cake as it is very important to this which will make lighter cake.No butter It is nice one.I had tried this recipe for Bake Along Challenge.It was my 1st attempt to try out this one.It was an airy and loved that taste.It was enjoyed by my family and my friends :)  Am happy that Bake Along challenge did perfect selection on this month and heart felt thanks to everyone:)
Bake Along Challenge is twice a month bloghop, hosted by Joyce from Kitchen Flavours, Lena from Frozen Wings and Zoe from Bake for Happy Kids.

Here well goes the recipe adapted from Cake Keeper's Cake" by Lauren Chattman. I have halved the measurements  and you can make the same measurements as you like from here.

Here is the ingredients as below as I have halved because it is my 1st attempt.It came out perfect and i made it again one more time.I baked 2 round ones.:) :) You can make the same as recipe adapted from here :)


  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup  Curd( I made homemade curd) Not sour at all.
  •  1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup Sugar or depends on curd if its sour, adjust the sugar to it
  • 3 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil.(I used it.)


Here is the image as shown step by step.
  •  Preheat the oven to 350 F or 180 C
  • Grease the bottom and sides of  an 8 inch round cake pan with oil and dust it with flour. Keep aside.
  • Sift the flour,baking powder,baking soda into another bowl.Add salt to it.
  • Take a wide bowl,Beat the curd and sugar until its well combined to avoid any lumps.
  • Add egg to it and beat it with spatula or whisker. 
  • Add oil and vanilla extract to it.
  • Add the sifted flour by adding one by one in three additions.
  • Once it is well incorporated by using spatula while being folded gently.
  • Transfer to the greased cake pan.
  • Tap the cake pan gently to avoid any bubbles formed.
  • Bake it for about 30 to 35 minutes or until the cake is golden brown in color once the tooth pick comes out clean.
  • Allow it to cool.
  • Garnish it with Powdered sugar or fruits of your choice.(I used stencil and I made it :) )
  • Enjoy it 
Notes : Store uneaten cake in a cake keeper or wrap in plastic and store at room temperature for up to 2 days.
