Chocolate & Yogurt Cake Frosted with Vanilla & Yogurt Frosting

This a newly created version of my mothers Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake ! We have always LOVED Chocolate Mayo Cake & If you wish to revert back to her original recipe I will post that as well! But I wanted to do a yogurt based cake ever since I added yogurt to my bread recipes & I thought this mayo based recipe would be the safest recipe to play with! The Vanilla Yogurt Frosting was an inspiration after I baked the cake & thought well you make cream cheese frosting why not a yogurt based frosting? Why not indeed it is a wonderful flavor that blends nicely with the powdered sugar! I hope you enjoy these 2 new recipes!
This cake turned out so well! MOIST & with a difference in flavor from the yogurt that is just an interesting twist to the usual chocolate cake. The cake itself is springy almost like sponge but with a dense moistness that is so not a sponge cake. All in all this is a delightful chocolate cake. The yogurt frosting has the nice tang of yogurt without the heaviness of cream cheese frosting ! The two together are superb . FOODIES you should enjoy this one when you want a simple not heavy decadent dessert!

2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
2 TSP Baking Soda
1 TSP Salt
1/3 Cup Cocoa
1 Cup Non Fat Plain Yogurt
1 Cup Brewed let cool Coffee ( I just love coffee in chocolate recipes it just adds a boost to chocolate!)
1 TBS Vanilla
2 Eggs

Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees
Prepare 2, 9 inch cake pans for regular sized cake or 2, 8 inch pans for a higher but smaller around in size cake, by greasing & flouring amply with both!
Sift all dry ingredients together. Add all the wet ingredients & beat until well blended, about 2 minutes. Divide between the pans. For 9 inch pans bake 25 to 30 minutes. 8 inch pans might take longer to bake but check with a toothpick inserted, if it comes out clean your cake is done!. Let cool 10 minutes then dump out of pans & this cake slides right out ! Let cool before frosting.

Vanilla & Yogurt Frosting

1 Stick Butter Softened
4 Cups Powdered Sugar
1/4 TSP Salt
1 TBS Vanilla
3 HEAPING Tablespoons Plain Non Fat Yogurt

Cream butter, add vanilla & 2 cups of the sugar. Beat then add 2 HEAPING tablespoons of the yogurt & then beat again. Add the remaining amounts of sugar & yogurt & beat until fluffy & creamy. The texture of this frosting was perfect for what I wanted. If you want a softer frosting you might want to add more yogurt & if you want a stiffer frosting just add more sugar!


  1. I took this cake to work this morning & it was a success! Everyone LOVED the yogurt frosting & they thought the cake was WONDERFUL! Like I said the light springy texture is what makes this cake different in a GREAT WAY! I hope you love this cake as much as the FOODIES at work loved it! It was completely eaten by 11:00 AM !
