Spongy, sweet, delicious & customisable. Yet you’ll never believe how simple and easy these individual yogurt cakes are to make – you can have it in the oven within minutes!

3. Grease a muffin tin (6 hole) and pour the batter in (see note 5). Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Use a skewer to test if ready (insert into the center of the cake and if it comes out clean then it’s ready)

Yogurt Cake Individual


  1. I think in the US most standard measures are 1 oz (29ml). Obviously, this is going to make very little difference but please note that the calorie information is based on using a 25ml measure (0.85 oz)
  2. You really can use any flavour yogurt you want – so get creative! You can also just use plain yogurt if you are going to add fruits or chocolate to the batter to flavour it. 
  3. It might seem like a lot of oil for a cake – but since you don’t add butter it is needed to keep everything moist.
  4. You can also use an individual sized cake tin or even a ramekin.
