This Orange and Yoghourt Cake is a lovely recipe for all sorts of occasions – morning tea or dessert!


Ingredients (serves 8)

  • 100g Greek Yoghourt with coconut
  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 80g Grapeseed Oil
  • 1 Orange
  • 150g Self Raising Flour
  • 50g Almond Meal
  • 50g Desiccated Coconut

Method

  1. Zest the orange and then juice.
  2. Combine the sugar, eggs and grape seed oil and mix on a medium speed for 1 - 2 minutes.
  3. Add all other ingredients and mix on a low speed for a further 1 - 2 minutes.
  4. Pour into a 20cm round baking tin (or a ring tin is even better), greased and floured and cook in a 170C oven for 30 - 40 minutes.
  5. While the cake is baking, combine the orange juice and half the sugar into a small saucepan and simmer until the mixture thickens slightly.
  6. The cake is cooked when a skewer comes out of the centre part of the cake clean.
  7. While the cake is cooling, pour the thickened orange juice over the cake and allow to soak through. If you prefer your cake a little less moist, reserve the juice and add at time of serving.
  8. Serve with extra Greek Yoghourt Coconut.


  • Omg, this looks amazing. The cake plus the yogurt look like the perfect match.

  • We love yoghurt and Jalna is one of the healthiest ones produced here in Oz. But prefer not to heat yoghurt as lots of the benefits are destroyed in the heating process.

  • Bit confusing :/ Has 100gms sugar, says to mix this with eggs and grape seed oil. Then you put juice and half the sugar in a pan……half of what sugar? It’s all gone in with eggs and oil. Unless you mean 50gms as half the sugar??? Looks yum tho, can’t wait to try
