Ciambella allo yogurt (Easy Yogurt Cake)-yogurt

Ciambella allo Yogurt (Easy Yogurt Cake)

Ciambella allo Yogurt (Easy Yogurt Cake) is a simple, fast, and delicious cake made of yogurt (plain or flavored), and basic kitchen ingredients. You will use the yogurt container to measure your ingredients as follows: 1 container of yogurt (125 grams), 2 containers of sugar, 1 container of oil, and 3 containers of flour. Plus 3 eggs and 1 sachet (packet) of baking powder. Now, how easy is that?

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 10 servings 1x


  • 1 x 125 g apricot yogurt at room temperature (empty the yogurt container and use it as your measuring "cup")
  • 2 containers (about 200 g) cane sugar (lately I have reduced the sugar to 1 container)
  • 1 container (125 g) vegetable oil (I use peanut oil)
  • 3 large eggs, organic free range, at room temperature
  • the zest of 1 organic lemon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, optional
  • 3 containers (about 260 g) flour 00 (or 180 g flour + 80 g potato starch)
  • 16 g (1 sachet) baking powder
  • pinch of salt. optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F (180° C). Butter and flour a bundt pan, or 20-24 cm cake pan, or loaf pan.
  2. Beat the eggs with the sugar with an electric whisk or by hand until frothy. Add the lemon zest.
  3. Add the vegetable oil slowly and keep whisking, then the yogurt and vanilla (if using) and continue whisking until everything is well incorporated.
  4. Sift the flour with the salt and baking powder.
  5. Add the flour mixture a little at a time (or 1 container at a time) and blend well using an electric whisk or by hand until smooth and without lumps.
  6. Pour the cake batter in the prepared cake pan (whatever you've decided to use) and bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  7. Take out of the oven and let cool on a rack before unmolding.
  8. Dust with powdered (icing) sugar and serve.


The yogurt cake can keep at room temperature, covered, for 3-4 days without losing its moist crumb.

You can use plain or flavored yogurt. You can add fruit, or chocolate chips, or a part of cocoa (add 2 Tbsp of cocoa and take out 2 Tbsp of flour).  Whatever addition, it must be added at the end, after the flour mixture has been incorporated.
