Chocolate Yogurt Loaf Cake

Originally from here.

I make this cake at least twice a month. It’s delicious, and chocolatey, and easy (presuming you don’t mind getting some dishes dirty).

You will need:

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup plain yogurt


Not pictured: water, because it’s boring; and salt, because I forgot.

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.

If you have a small, wobbly table, inherited from the previous tenants, keep an eye on your eggs, or else you will end up with this sad situation.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until the mixture is fluffy and resembles wet sand.

Beat in egg and egg white.

In a small bowl, whisk together water, cocoa powder, vanilla and yogurt until mixture is smooth. It’ll look a little gross at this stage.

047

We now have our three major players, which will be added in installments.

048

Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to the sugar and butter, then half of the yogurt mixture, then another 1/3 of the flour mixture. Stir in remaining yogurt and remaining flour, stirring only until no streaks of flour remain.

049

Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly.

051

Bake for 55-60 minutes. Decide to put off washing the dishes, and catch up on The Office instead.

053

Drool.

054

Consume.

056

Die happy.

    That cake looks so delicious! Especially that huge piece, something I just want to die into. I could probably live in there.
