I’ve been sharing a ridiculous amount of strawberry recipes with you lately. I’m not sorry. I love strawberries. And although I don’t have any other strawberry creations planned, our garden is just starting to burst with fresh berries, so no promises.

If you don’t share my love of strawberries, don’t run off just yet. I think I can still convince you to try this Strawberry Yogurt Cake.

About this Strawberry Yogurt Cake

  • Flavor: A simple, white loaf cake with a hint of strawberry flavor.
  • Texture: This bread has a very smooth, cakey texture. No chunky strawberries. Strawberry Greek yogurt makes this cake moist.

Greek Yogurt Substitute for Sour Cream

Greek yogurt is a healthy replacement for sour cream. The greek yogurt keeps the “tang” that sour cream has, but it adds protein and less fat.

How to Make Strawberry Yogurt Cake

  • Prepare. Allow the butter, eggs and yogurt to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Grease and flour a 9×5 loaf pan. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 325ºF.
  • Whisk dry ingredients. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • Mix wet ingredients. In a stand mixer, cream the butter on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add the sugar and beat for 3-4 minutes, until the mixture is light and fluffy. Scrape the sides of the bowl as needed. Mix in the vanilla extract. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating for about 1 minute after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowls, as needed.
  • Alternate flour and yogurt. Add the flour mixture and yogurt alternately, beating on low speed and mixing just until combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  • Bake. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes, then remove it to a wire rack.

Storage Instructions

After the cake has completely cooled, store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. Then freeze any leftovers.

Serving Ideas

This simple moist cake recipe is so versatile.

  • Strawberry Shortcake. Use it as a base for strawberry shortcake. Add strawberry syrup or sugared strawberries on top. You can top it with strawberries or fresh fruit.
  • French Toast. Dip the sliced cake in an egg & milk mixture and make French toast.
  • Regular Toast. Butter the toast and warm it in a frying pan. Then sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top. So delicious!
  • Top with fresh fruit and whipped cream.

But my favorite way? It’s so good just eaten by the slice with a cup of coffee in the morning. That’s my kind of way to start the day.
