Recipe: Easy Orange Yogurt Loaf Cake

Easy orange yogurt loaf cake recipe - FarmgirlFare.com
A simple, classic orange cake that tastes great with strawberries (recipe here).

How about a sweet treat from the archives? This Easy Orange Yogurt Loaf Cake, which I originally shared back in 2008, is one of the most popular recipes on Farmgirl Fare and still one of my personal favorites.

It's an old-fashioned, not overly-sweet cake that mixes up quickly, can be eaten plain or gussied up, and stays moist for several days. It tastes even better the second day (so you can bake it ahead), transports well, freezes beautifully, and can be easily sliced when frozen.

It's heavenly with fresh strawberries or blueberries, especially if you add some whipped cream and/or vanilla ice cream.

This is the kind of simple cake recipe that everyone should have in their collection (try a lemon or other citrus version instead of orange), and the comments at the end of the recipe are full of rave reviews. Enjoy!

Still hungry? You'll find links to all my sweet & savory Less Fuss, More Flavor recipes in the Farmgirl Fare Recipe Index.

P.S. Sadly, strawberries are #2 on the Environmental Working Group's list of most contaminated produce. Search for locally grown, organic strawberries (which will be so much more flavorful than store bought) on Local Harvest, or find a U-Pick farm in your area on PickYourOwn.org.

  1. Mmm, that does looks good. And what a great idea dragging up a recipe from the archives, I have a flapjack recipe from around 2009 and it gets the most traffic every single day!
