We love to cook with yogurt. We love to share what we cook with yogurt with you. We really love it when you share what you cook with yogurt with us!
Stonyfield friend and fan, Renata, has loaned us her Vanilla Cake recipe, so we thought we’d pass it along for you to try. Do you bake with yogurt? If so, share your favorite recipe with us in the Comments section. We may feature your recipe in a future blog!
Renata’s Vanilla Cake
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup plain nonfat Oikos Stonyfield Yogurt
1 cup cane sugar
3 large eggs
1/3 cup applesauce
1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Fresh or frozen organic berries to serve
Preheat oven to 350°F. Oil a 9-inch cake pan.
In a mixing bowl, blend flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a second bowl, whisk together yogurt, sugar, eggs, applesauce, almond extract and vanilla extract. Gently whisk flour mixture into yogurt mixture just until blended.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes or until cake is golden brown. The cake should be just firm in the center when done. Cool cake on a rack and serve with berries. The fruit takes the place of icing and provides an extra healthy touch of sweetness from nature!

Being raised in Londonderry, New Hampshire – just around the corner from us! – Renata grew up with Stonyfield yogurt and has fond childhood memories of school field trips touring the Stonyfield factory. She always had a Stonyfield yogurt packed in her lunchbox throughout her school years and frozen yogurt in stock at home. Now as an adult, she still selects Stonyfield for love of its pure taste and quality. Renata is thrilled that the Stonyfield brand has “grown-up” with her. (We’re so glad too.)
When not cooking, Renata enjoys spending quality time with her family and close friends and making the most of everyday. She takes pride in her well-being, eating healthy organic food and exercising daily. She’s always up for trying new things and embracing a new experience and through all her endeavors, she continues to learn and challenge herself.
