Our Strawberry Yogurt Cake is a variation of the classic English loaf recipe. It's a delicious breakfast treat that you should add to your baking repertoire.
The recipe is very simple: it consists of three easy steps, and it's ready in less than one hour. The result will be a superbly spongy and fresh strawberry cake with a hint of vanilla that will put a big smile on your face and set you off for a happy day! To give our yogurt loaf more oomph and softness, we have mixed normal flour with rice flour.
You can store the cake in an airtight container for 3 days as it is quite moist. Alternatively, you can store it in the fridge for a bit longer or slice and freeze it for up to four weeks.

Preheat the oven to 170°C (338° F). Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature before starting. This way they are more 'relaxed' and the cake will result soft and spongy. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and brown sugar using an electric mixer for 5 minutes. The egg batter should be light and fluffy. Next, add the vanilla extract and the oil, pouring it slowly while mixing.
Sift the white flour, rice flour, baking powder in a separate bowl. Next, add them to the egg mixture a couple of spoons at a time while mixing with the hand mixer. Add a pinch of salt. Mix until the ingredients are just incorporated to avoid a hard and chewy texture when baked.
Grease and flour a loaf tin and pour the batter. Cook in the oven in the middle shelf for 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Turn the oven off and keep the door slightly open for 5 minutes to avoid an abrupt cooling of the cake. After this time, remove the tin from the oven and transfer the cake on a wire rack to cool down.
Slice and serve with a nice mug of spiced latte and berries fruit salad.
Try using different types of yogurt to get new and unique flavors.
You can also use a low or zero fat yogurt if desired but the final texture may be a bit drier.
