Traditional French Yogurt Cake


Units Scale

Ingredients for the cake:

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla, optional (I did not have vanilla so I skipped this and they were still sweet and delicious)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, optional (Since I didn’t have vanilla, I also skipped the salt)
  • Chocolate chips or fruit mix in to taste

Ingredients for the coating:

  • White Almond Bark
  • Coconut or Olive Oil
  • Food Coloring (if you want to skip food coloring you could use mashed up strawberries or blueberries in the almond bark to get color and extra flavor)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Flour or butter line your mini cake trays, small cake pan, or loaf pan.
  3. Mix all the cake ingredients except for the mix-ins together.
  4. Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-35 minutes, until lightly browned on top and an inserted toothpick or cake tester comes out clean.
  5. Once the cakes are slightly cooled cut off the “muffin tops” and let rest for 20 minutes.
  6. While resting melt your almond bark and color with food coloring or fruit dyes.
  7. Dip your cooled cakes into the melted almond bark and decorate with sprinkles or fruit.
  8. Let the dipped cakes cool and harden.
  9. Enjoy!


Don’t throw away the muffin tops! Delicious on their own with a glass of milk or crumbled up and repurposed into cake pops.
