If you’ve never added yogurt to a cake, you don’t know what you’re missing. Yogurt is like the world’s best-kept baking secret. 

It’ll make your cakes lighter, fluffier, and so much moister. In some cases, it also adds a subtle tanginess that enhances the cake’s overall flavor. 

If yogurt can do all that, why don’t we hear about more yogurt cake recipes? Honestly, I’m not sure.

Maybe people just don’t want to share their “secret ingredient” a la Mr. Krabs.

Luckily, I’m more than happy to share. Without further ado, I give you my collections of the best yogurt cake recipes internet has to offer.

1. Lemon Yogurt Cake

Are you a fan of lemon desserts? If so, you’ll love this one. It might be the most lemony of all the lemon desserts I’ve ever tried.

It has an intense, bright flavor, perfect for spring or summer. And that’s before you add the extra lemon glaze on top! 

The whole thing is moist, airy, and totally delightful. 

2. Chocolate Yogurt Cake

Want something richer and more decadent than lemon cake? This chocolate yogurt cake is ideal. You’ll start with a dense but tender chocolate cake layer. 

To that, you’ll add an insanely indulgent chocolate glaze. It’s a double dose of cocoa yumminess, and I’m here for it.

You can add tangy berries to the top to lighten the flavor. Or you can enjoy it as it is. Either way, you’ll want a second piece.

I recommend waiting a bit before getting it, though. Whew. It’s rich.

3. Lemon Berry Yogurt Cake

Here’s another bright and zesty lemon cake. The difference is that this one also includes a tangy selection of mixed berries.

Between the berries and the yogurt, the cake is borderline juicy. Biting into it is like biting into a cool, refreshing, sweet-n-tangy cloud.  It’s soft and delicious, a combo you won’t want to miss.

4. Blueberry Greek Yogurt Cake

This ten-ingredient cake is a must-try for anyone who loves blueberries. It’s only lightly sweet but has plenty of tart tanginess. 

It also has a fantastic texture and is wonderfully buttery. It’s a great dessert or brunch option, especially in the summer months. 

5. Fresh Strawberry Bundt Cake

Strawberry bundt cake is moist and spongy with a sticky, sweetly tart lemon glaze. It balances the line between sweet and tangy perfectly. 

It’s tender and features bright pops of red from the strawberries. In other words, it looks and feels as good as it tastes.

6. Yogurt Banana Chocolate Cake

I adore the combination of bananas and chocolate. They’re two of my favorite flavors, and this cake harnesses them flawlessly. 

It’s a lovely, rich cake that’s almost pure chocolate decadence. Beneath the chocolate, though, there’s a light hint of sweet bananas. It’s spectacular. 

7. Easy Yogurt Cake

Easy yogurt cake is a simple, fluffy cake. However, you can tweak its taste by swapping out different yogurt flavors. 

Want a strawberry cake? Use strawberry yogurt. Want a rich, warm fall-flavored cake? Use maple syrup yogurt. 

Because it’s so easy to change, it’s impossible to tell you how this cake tastes. With plain yogurt, it’s just a sweet, relatively straightforward cake. 

The blueberry sauce recipe here is another story entirely. It tastes like pure blueberry goodness. You can use it as a topping on anything you like.

8. Greek Yogurt Coffee Cake

Everything about this yogurt coffee cake is on point. You’ll love the elaborate streusel topping and the sweet vanilla glaze.

This gently spiced cake is on the rich side. However, unlike many coffee cakes, it’s not at all dry or crumbly. However, you can still enjoy it with a hot mug of tea or coffee. 

9. Orange Yogurt Cake

This cake looks like a plain cake layer. Fortunately, a single bite will tell you just how wrong you are about that. It has an amazing citrusy flavor that’s out of this world.

Top it with whipped cream, berries, orange glaze, or anything you want. It’s a tasty dessert, but you could also indulge for breakfast if you prefer.

10. Cherry Yogurt Cake

This luscious, ultra-moist cake is a must-try for cherry lovers.

It’s a simple yogurt cake. However, you’ll load the top down with sugared cherries. 

Sweetness and tartness vie for dominance in every bite. This will be a great option if you want something fruity and refreshing for summer.

11. Raspberry Yogurt Cake

You’ll need ten ingredients and 10 minutes of prep for this tangy cake. It’s moist, spongy, and full of raspberry flavor. 

It’s a delightfully buttery cake that will almost literally melt in your mouth. You can add toppings if you like, but this cake doesn’t need them. 

It’s gorgeous as it is, and it tastes incredible, too.

12. Apple Yogurt Cake with a Cinnamon-Sugar Streak

Looking for a warm, spiced cake perfect for fall? You’ve found it! 

This rich apple cake is juicy and features a cinnamon-sugar streak through the middle. So what does that mean exactly?

Well, it means that some bites will be bright and apple-y. Then, others will feature the warm decadence of cinnamon and sugar. Occasionally, you’ll get both in the same mouthful. 

This cake looks beautiful, smells fantastic, and tastes even better. It’s the kind of delectable cake your gramma would make on special occasions.

13. Cinnamon Peach Yogurt Cake

Everyone knows that apples and cinnamon go well together. Did you know that peaches and cinnamon make a great combination, too?

They do. This shiny, stunning cake features the light, bright taste of peaches. Beneath that lightness, though, is the rich warmth of cinnamon. 

Every bite is a genuine delight to eat. The hardest thing about this cake is forcing yourself to share it with others.

14. French Yogurt Cake

“Sweet, simple, and homemade.” That’s what this recipe’s author calls it, which sums it up perfectly. It’s a delicately sweet, easy-to-make cake the whole family will love.

And because it’s so simple, you can do anything with it. You can top it with ice cream, Cool Whip, or berries. You can cover it in decadent chocolate or caramel.

You could even turn it into a strawberry shortcake. Whatever you choose to do with it, it’s sure to satisfy.

15. One-Bowl Yogurt and Honey Olive Oil Cake

Olive oil, yogurt, thyme, lemon, and honey don’t sound like they’d make a very appetizing cake. Surprisingly, though, they do

This cake isn’t just appetizing; it’s heavenly. It’s a fragrant and flavorful confection that’s somehow sweet and savory all at once.

I like to add extra honey and strawberry slices to mine when it’s done. Frankly, it’s another one that doesn’t need all the extra attention. It’s terrific just the way it is.

16. Semolina Yogurt Cake

Semolina yogurt cake is one of the lightest, moistest cakes on this list. Plus, the longer it sits, the softer it gets! That means it’s even better the day after you make it.

Of course, having the self-control not to eat it all on day one is nearly impossible.

Still, try your best to save some. And if you fail, you can always make another one and try again. 🙂

17. Vegan Yogurt Cake

Vegan yogurt cake sounds like an oxymoron, I know. However, this cake is, in fact, 100% vegan and dairy-free. 

You’ll use cashew yogurt instead of the traditional kind. The cake still gets all the benefits of adding yogurt – moist, fluffy, etc. 

Fortunately for vegans, though, you won’t have to use any animal products. If you don’t want a plain cake, try adding various spices or berries into the batter.
