Greek yoghurt and orange cake

A simple, healthy and soft cake. The oil is used instead of the butter and the presence of orange juice makes the cake very soft. I put a part of it in the freezer already cut in cubes and I let it defreeze in the fridge to eat it at room temperature and it was soft as when I just did it” Try to believe!

Time of preparation

about 1 hour


a 22 cm mould

What did I use

an electric whisk, a large bowl


Egg: 4

White greek yoghurt: 250 gr

Sugar: 180 gr

Flour: 250 gr

Sunflower seeds oil: 100 gr

Juice of 1 orange

Vanilla extract: few drops

Baking soda: half a teaspoon

Bakinf powder: 16 gr

Salt: a pinch

How did I do

First, I separated the egg whites from the yolks. I added salt to the egg whites and I whipped them.

I beated the yolks with sugar. I added the yoghurt with the spoon, the vanilla extract and oil. I mixed well.

I added flour, baking powder and baking soda, sifted together.

Then, I added orange juice and mixed.

I added slowly the egg whites so not to ruin their compactness.

In the mould covered with baking paper I poured the dough and cooked it in the oven at 180 °C for 30/40 minutes, until brownish on the surface.

I let it cool and served.

Buon appetito!
