This Berry Yogurt Cake (No eggs, No butter), made with olive oil and yogurt, is soft, creamy, and incredibly moist. Lightly flavored from the berries in the yogurt, it’s an incredible light and spongy cake that can be a party favorite. It’s been one of my personal favorite because its so easy to pull together. Dress it up with summer berries or serve with just a dust of sugar.
I baked this eggless berry yogurt cake with gluten free flour and no eggs but wasn’t so impressed with the outcome. May be the Gluten Free flour needs an egg or two to get that spongy texture. Until I perfect the GF Berry Yogurt Cake recipe, you enjoy the recipe with all purpose flour. You will never go wrong with this recipe as this one is baked by me many many times.
For this Eggless Berry Yogurt Cake, I used 1/2 cup store bought berry yogurt (any will work) and 1/2 cup regular Greek yogurt. If you don’t have berry yogurt handy then make your own by mixing 1/4 cup berries with 1/2 cup of yogurt. The crushed berries in the yogurt add an amazing flavor profile to this sponge cake. Just the addition of berry yogurt makes this cake perfect for summer tea parties or even Mother’s Day brunch.
