I so rarely bake, but I came across this simple enough recipe that I thought even I couldn't mess it up. It's a classic French recipe for kids, that uses yogurt and then the container to measure out the rest of the ingredients. Brilliant, easy, and delicious.

RECIPE (adapted from Bringing Up Bebe)

2 six-ounce containers of plain, whole milk yogurt (OR 6 oz equals 3/4 cup, you can use that to measure the rest of the ingredients as well.)

2 eggs

1 or 2 containers of sugar (I used one and it was good, not too sweet, but next time I might use 1 and a half, or dust the top with sugar when baking)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Just under 1 container vegetable oil (I had grapeseed oil on hand so I used that)

4 containers of flour (I used Bob's gluten free baking flour and it worked great)

1 and a half tsp baking powder

1 to 2 containers of chocolate chips, berries, etc. Instead of those options I used the zest of one lemon, and then squeezed the juice into the wet ingredients. Loved it and would do that again.


Preheat oven to 375. Mix the wet ingredients in a large bowl (yogurt, eggs, sugar, vanilla, oil, lemon juice and lemon zest). Mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl (flour and baking powder). Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Bake for 35 minutes. Enjoy!
