Orange Yogurt Cake

Orange Yogurt Cake

This delightful Orange Yogurt Cake is one of those versatile treats that you can have for breakfast with your morning cup of coffee (tea for me!) or as a dessert with a side of ice cream. It’s dense and rich. Oh. So. Good.

Orange Yogurt Cake
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
2 tablespoons freshly grated orange zest
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup plain whole milk yogurt
1/2 Naval orange, freshly squeezed
1 cup confectioners’ sugar

Heat oven to 350 °F. In a medium bowl, sift the flour with the baking powder and the salt. In a larger bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, orange zest and , vanilla and oil. Whisk in the yogurt and continue to whisk until smooth. Fold in the flour mixture and whisk gently until combined. Grease a loaf baking pan and pour in orange cake batter.

Bake in heated oven 45-50 minutes until cake is done. Remove from oven and cool. Place the confectioners’s sugar in a medium bowl and whisk in the juice from the orange (2-3 tablespoons).

Drizzle over the Orange Yogurt Cake and allow to soak in and drizzle down the sides. Slice & serve.

    1. Thanks Loretta! It was so enjoyable sitting out there with the birds singing and the beautiful sky – and my delightful treat! Have a wonderful weekend 💗💗


  2. Great timing! I just got a whole bag of oranges and it looks like something I can make 🙂 Do you think it’ll make a huge difference if I use non-fat (milk) greek yogurt?
