  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, preferably bleached (190 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plain yogurt, full fat (240 grams)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams)
  • 3 large eggs
  • Peel of 1 lemon (I sometimes use yellow cake flavoring)
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract (or just use vanilla
  • 1/2 cup canola oil or any clean and neutral oil


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with flour-added cooking spray.
  • Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. I sifted the flour because I’m suddenly in the habit of doing it even though it’s not always necessary if you weigh your flour.
  • Combine the yogurt, sugar, eggs, and flavorings in a large bowl; whisk well to blend. Gradually whisk dry ingredients into yogurt mixture. Stir in oil; mix until well combined. Pour mixture into prepared pan.
  • Bake until cake begins to pull away from sides and toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Cool in pan on rack for 5 minutes. Using a small, sharp knife, cut around edge of cake to loosen. Turn cake out onto rack; turn upright and cool completely.
  • At this point, you can pour icing over it or take it to the next level and grill it. Heat your grill as you usually would, spray grill with cooking spray, and grill slices of cake for 1 to 2 minutes per side.
