"This cake uses any kind of yogurt you have in the fridge. It is an easy way to make strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and peach cakes. Very tender and moist in the center. Excellent!"

I've made this many times and I just love it. I use extra yogurt but that's the only change....I just add two containers and use a premimum brand. I love the blackberry especially. It's not too sweet and needs no icing...a real winner in my book!!
I was excited to make this cake but did not turn out what I expected. The cake turned out crumbly, a little dry and heavy, maybe an extra egg and cake flour also white sugar instead of dark.
3 Modifications :
1) 1.5x the recipe (12 servings but used 2 eggs instead of 1.5)... and I got 12 muffins with good size tops...
2) Used white sugar because I thought the fruit-yogurt flavor was rather delicate for brown sugar...
3) After half-filling the muffin tins I placed a small bit of raspberry jam (about 1/2 teaspoon each) and then covered the jam with batter, making sure the sides of top batter touched the batter below so as to prevent the jam from leaking out to the muffin tin body... which will burn during baking...
350 degree oven for 30 minutes... Got the perfect muffin shape with high tops and shoulders...
Very tender and fluffy inside... the white sugar gave it a soft white colour and I think it looks more delicate in addition to tasting so...
The crust was golden and not too thick... The little jam "surprise" was good as the muffin was not too sweet... Some leaked throup the top... the colour contrast against the soft white inside was also very pretty...
Overall, a great way to impart subtle flavour to muffins... as well as an easy way to make never-tough muffins...
Will definitely make again... Highly recommended !!
I used one more egg and white sugar instead of brown and got the moist yummy cake that the submitter mentions. If you're looking for a more fruity taste, a few teaspoons of jam may help.
This is a very good, easy cake. I used others ideas and added an extra 4oz of yogurt, an extra egg and it was very, very moist!I only had plain yogurt so I added 1/2 cup chocolate syrup for flavor. Yumm
This is a wonderful cake indeed!!!! Easy and I used wild berry fat free, sugar free yogurt! Did only have to cook in my oven for 35 minutes. Will be making again and trying different flavours of yogurt. Also cut back on sugar and used crystalized cane sugar. Highly recommend trying this cake!!! My husband loved it also.
WOW. It is wonderful!!! I follow other users suggestions (use two eggs, regular sugar and 1 3/4 cup of yogurt). It is amazingly good. I did not have the vanilla extract but I used vanilla flavor Yogurt! Left in the oven for about 40-45 minutes. I recommend this recipe.
This is a good recipe. I used cherry yogurt(Dannon blend), though it is a very subtle flavor within the cake. Brown throughout (which I expected w/ the brown sugar) and not very pretty as cakes go. I did mix up some milk, vanilla and powdered sugar to drizzle over the top. Next time I may try to find a stronger flavored yogurt to use. Very enjoyable. I may make again to use for my daughter's first birthday cake, as she really enjoyed this first one I made!
