A simple yogurt cake using summer fruit of your choice.
  • 1 cup plain full-fat yogurt
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1½ cups unbleached white all-purpose flour, plus 1 tablespoon for the plums
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ - 2 cups pitted plums, each plum cut into 8 pieces
  • powdered sugar (optional garnish)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil a 10-inch springform pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, sugar, salt and almond extract until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking until the batter is thick and smooth.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda in a small bowl. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold the flour mixture into the wet ingredients.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and use a spatula to gently smooth the top. Gently toss the plums with the remaining flour and sprinkle on top of the batter.
  5. Bake 40-45 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean and the top springs back when gently touched.
  6. Allow the cake to rest in the pan for 10 minutes before removing sides. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired, and allow the cake to cool before serving.
