Easy and moist yogurt orange loaf cake


Its 9PM and I just realize that tomorrow they will be serving cake at Panos’ school! If you follow me on Instagram @panoseats you will know by now that I like to send food for my kids to school for numerous reasons which we can discuss in another post. So I wanted to bake a quick, easy and healthy cake that Panos would enjoy. This is how I came up with this super easy and moist yogurt orange loaf cake recipe. You will need just one bowl and less than 10 min to prepare it! So, let’s get into baking, shall we?

What you will need and substitutions

  • Yogurt. I used plain non-Greek yogurt. You can use any dairy-free yogurt of your choice if you want to keep this dairy-free. The consistency of the yogurt should be runny and not so thick as Greek.
  • Eggs. I always like to use pasture raised organic eggs as I believe that the animals get treated the way that they should be in the pastures. You can use what you have on hand.
  • Honey. You can substitute with maple syrup if this is what you have on hand.
  • Oil. I used coconut oil but you can substitute with olive oil or avocado oil or even grass-fed butter or ghee. However, I feel that the coconut oil helps to keep this extra moisture inside.
  • Oranges. You will need just the zest of the oranges but this is enough to give a beautiful aroma in the cake. Just make sure that the oranges that you pick are not waxed.
  • Flour. I used a combination of whole wheat pastry flour and all purpose flour. You can use just one of the two.
  • Baking Powder. Always I choose aluminum-free baking powder.


On Panos eco-friendly Bubba-Boo Bamboo Panda plate, I served this easy and moist yogurt orange loaf cake along with plain sheep yogurt and oranges. Panos absolutely loved this cake. The next day I even turned this cake into French toast. What a hit!
