Equipment

  • Bundt Pan

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup Stonyfield Organic Greek Plain (Whole Milk) yogurt
  • 3 cups King Arthur 100% Organic all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Using a tube/bundt cake pan, grease the pan or spray with cooking spray, lightly flour, and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the King Arthur all-purpose flour and the baking soda which I measured with the oh so handy Levoons leveling measuring spoons. Set the flour mixture aside.
  • Using a mixer, blend together the butter and sugar until it becomes light and fluffy.
  • Slowly add the eggs and continue mixing well.
  • Add the Stonyfield Organic yogurt and mix until the batter becomes smooth.
  • Turn the mixer on low speed and slowly add the flour mixture a little at a time.
  • Once the flour has become fully blended into the batter add in the vanilla extract and mix until incorporated.
  • Pour the cake mixture into the prepared baking pan and place in the oven to bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and place on a baking rack with the cake still in the pan and allow to cool for 20 minutes. Trace a knife around the edge of the baking pan to help you to remove the cake.
  • Place a plate on top of the baking pan and using both hands, flip the cake pan upside down placing the plate on the countertop.
  • Slowly remove the baking pan. Slice the cake and serve.
