Chocolate and Greek Yoghurt Cake

This chocolatey treat is really moist and satisfying. It’s healthier as well- so ticks all the boxes.

The ingredients for this cake were originally supplied by Bakedin, but this recipe works equally as well.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 ¾ cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Method
  • 1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees).
  • 2) Sift flour, cocoa powder, and salt together in a bowl. Mix sugar, water, eggs, Greek yogurt, and vanilla extract together in another bowl using an electric mixer.
  • 3) Gradually add the flour-cocoa mixture into the bowl with the yogurt mixture. Mix until well blended. Pour batter into two 9-inch cake pans.
  • 4) Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the centers comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.

Once baked, you can decorate in any you like- it was Easter, so I decorated with chocolate swirls and mini Easter eggs.
