Blueberry yoghurt loaf

Fat Mum Slim /


Yoghurt is one of those things that we have every intention of eating daily and using up, but it’s one of things that always seems to be left at the back of the fridge, always a spoonful or so left before the day it dies {expires}. When I remember we do use it to make two-ingredient pizza dough and I have been meaning to try it for gozleme,and a few weekends ago I put it to use in this blueberry yoghurt loaf. Enjoy.


Blueberry Yoghurt Loaf


2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup thick natural yoghurt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries {fresh or frozen}
1 tbs finely grated lemon rind


♥ Preheat your own to 180 degrees Celsius. Prepare a loaf tin by lining it with baking paper.
♥ In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, and baking powder. Add in the oil, eggs, yoghurt and vanilla and mix to combine. Add blueberries and lemon zest and mix gently until just combined {too much mixing and you’ll change the colour of the batter}.
♥ Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and back for 50 minutes, or until golden on top and cooked through {test with a skewer}.

    Can you use SR flour instead ?

      I imagine self rising flour would work well if you remove the baking powder from the recipe.

    • I don’t think that would be a problem at all. Just remove the baking powder. 🙂

  • Yum! I have this in the oven right now but used fresh strawberries, coconut oil and coconut sugar instead (I didn’t even have brown sugar in my house, what the?!). Fingers crossed it comes out as good as yours looks. Thanks for sharing x

    How do you think this recipe would go in muffin pans??

    • I think it would cook perfectly, but the mix doesn’t have the sweetness of a muffin – so flavour-wise I think it would be a little unexpected. No harm in trying though, right?

        Mmm now I’m craving and I have all the ingredients bar yoghurt.

  • I love cakes with yoghurt. They have a deliciously moist and moreish texture. Might give this a whirl in ye olde thermomix. Sounds berry nice!

    I love yoghurt in cakes too. I made a similar cake last week with grated pear and it was delicious, now i think I’l try blueberries!
