Chocolate Yogurt Loaf Cake

June 2, 2010 at 10:30 pm (baking)

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.


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


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.


Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly.


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






Die happy.

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