Blueberry Yogurt Cake

I love making loaf cakes. They’re simple, quick and always turn out well. I’ve always experimented with flavours, using up whatever we have in the kitchen and when I had some blueberries that needed using up, this blueberry and yoghurt cake was created.

We love to have this cake as a treat in the afternoon – it goes well with a cup of tea! But the children also love a slice of blueberry cake for their breakfast! It’s a really versatile cake that can be made at any time or for any reason – or no reason at all!

Can you vary this Blueberry Yogurt Loaf Cake recipe?

The yogurt in this recipe helps keep the loaf cake really lovely and super moist whilst the vanilla sponge compliments the blueberries wonderfully. However, you could try using freshly squeezed lemon juice, lemon flavouring or lemon zest to create a lemon blueberry yogurt cake if you wanted.

We always use fresh blueberries for this recipe but frozen blueberries would also work well. The berries spread nicely through the cake and give lovely bursts of flavour as you enjoy this real simple but tasty berry yogurt cake.

We also always use caster sugar for this recipe but have also used golden caster sugar or standard granulated sugar for a really similar result. If you don’t have exactly the right sugar, don’t let that put you off. The same goes for yogurt – plain yogurt or natural yogurt would also work well in this bake.
