This is a cake that the French kids make all the time. Tasted 100s of times this is the ultimate French yogurt cake recipe, quick & easy. My trick: I use to add pears and dark chocolate.
When I was in elementary school I use to bake this cake all the time. I was given the classic yogurt cake recipe by my teacher. I immediatly thought this cake would be very tasty with pears and chocolate chips inside! 8-9 years old and I was already adapting recipes! Some prefer lemon zests and/or juice or vanilla abstract. I prefer this.
Moist and fluffy. A delight, but I am not objective at all! Childhood cakes always seems tasty don’t you think so ? What was the cake you use to bake all the time or that you use to prepare with your mum or grand mother ?
We made a booklet of all the elementary classmates recipes but unfortunately I can’t find it any more! To bad! I love old family cookbooks or notes. Here is what I got from my great grand-mother.
The French prefer the metric measures and are often lost when they see recipes with cups. All the more when it comes to pastry where they like to be VERY precise. This recipe uses the yogurt pot as a cup to measure. You use 1 pot of yogurt. As ti’s empty, all you have to do is use it to measure sugar, flour and oil. Very useful. And the good news is that 1 French yogurt pot is as big as ½ cup / 125 ml.
And for a gluten-free version, replace the 3 yogurt pots (thus 1cup ½) of flour by 2 pots (thus 1 cup) of corn flour.
