Orange Yogurt Loaf Cake

Orange Yogurt Loaf Cake is one of our all time favorite cake and I prepare it quite often. I am a huge fan of orange flavor and hence love the mild flavor in this cake. I got this recipe from Easy Cooking. I skipped the glaze as we are not fond of it. Hence incased the amount of sugar in the cake. The recipe is very easy to put together and it comes out perfect every single time. 

Its been a long time since I updated this space. I got busy with friends and then pain of wisdom tooth took over. I am slowly recovering from it and hence decided to bake a cake. This will be the first cake recipe on my blog. Do try it and I am sure you will love it.

  • All Purpose flour (Maida) - 1 1/2 cups
  • Baking powder - 2 tsp
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp
  • Sugar - 1 1/4 cup
  • Orange zest - From one whole orange
  • Yogurt (curd)- 1 cup
  • Large Eggs - 3
  • Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  • Oil* - 1/2 cup
*You can use any flavorless oil like canola or vegetable oil.


Preheat the oven to 350F (180C).
Grease the loaf pan using oil or butter. You can also spread parchment paper inside the pan.
Take all the dry ingredients - all purpose flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and give a rough mix.

In another big bowl add in the sugar and orange zest.

Now rub in the zest into the sugar so that the sugar gets flavored.

Now add yogurt, vanilla extract to the sugar mixture and mix well using a whisk until it comes together. Then add in the eggs and mix. Once the eggs gets incorporated add oil and mix. The mixture looks like this.

Now add the dry ingredients mix prepared earlier.

Mix the flour gently until you get a homogeneous mixture (don't over mix the batter).

Now pour this mixture into the prepared loaf pan (I used a portion of the batter to make four muffins).

Bake it in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean (for me it took 40 minutes for the loaf cake and 20 minutes for the muffins).
Once done let it cool for 5 minutes and then allow it to cool on a cooling rack.
Orange Yogurt Loaf Cake is ready!!

Serve it at room temperature. It stays good for 2-3 days. For later use refrigerate it.
