French Yogurt Cake

This cake that French school children learn to make, like American kids learn to make chocolate chip cookies, is very easy and delicious. Made with Pamela’s All-Purpose Flour Artisan Blend.



    • 1½ cups Pamela's All-Purpose Flour Artisan Blend
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • ¾ teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
    • ¾ cup whole milk Greek yogurt
    • ½ cup vegetable oil
    • 2 eggs, large
    • ½ tsp vanilla

    Preheat oven to 350°.

    Prep a standard 8½”x 4¼” loaf pan by spraying with oil, and lining with parchment paper if desired. Whisk All-Purpose Flour Artisan Blend, baking powder and salt together. In medium/large bowl, combine sugar and lemon zest together by mixing with fingers or a fork, until sugar is moist. Add yogurt, oil, eggs and vanilla and mix well. Fold in dry ingredients to just blend.

    Pour batter into loaf pan and smooth top. Bake in center of oven until toothpick comes out clean, about 50 to 55 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely. Store at room temperature, airtight, for up to three days.

Will this work with baking and pancake mix? Thank you.


Excellent texture and flavor! Many variations possible. So far I've mad this cake twice, delicious each time! The first time as written, the second time I added some lavender from my garden.
