Torta Bianca allo Yogurt - White Yogurt Cake

I am very pleased with this recipe, of course I always eat all my experiments, even when I am not so happy about them, but this one… I devoured it! It was so soft and light, possibly the
softest-cake-with-taste ever (if you know what I mean… some 'soft' cakes taste like air, or like a bath sponge!!).

butter to grease the tin (I used a ring tin)
3 egg whites
300 g sugar
250 g plain yogurt (I used full fat)
300 g self raising flour
1 pinch of salt
one drop vanilla essence
icing sugar to dust (optional)

Grease the cake tin with butter. Beat the egg white until they form a peak. In another mixing bowl fold the sugar and yogurt with a wooden spoon. Add the flour, salt and vanilla essence and mix well, then add the beaten egg whites little by little and fold. Pour the mixture in the cake tin and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for approximately 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Dust with icing sugar if you like.

  1. wow this is a definite recipe to steal as I was wanting to cut down on butter and the yoghurt is still high in protein! Made a butter free orange and almond cake with orange syrup last week and that went down a treat. I will let you know how you recipe turned out. Yum!

  2. Thank you Corrie, and with egg whites only is more protein and less fat! Your orange cake and almond cake sound delicious!

  3. What a lovely light looking cake! Perfect for a white themed party too :D

    1. Yes, or white and 'berries' party :-)

  4. Buona! Deve essere sofficissima!
    Un abbraccio

  5. Super soffice, la più soffice che abbia mai fatto mi sa :-)

  6. Fabulous cake, Alessandra. Definitely one for me to try. It looks nice and simple to make, and I always enjoy the moistness and texture you get from a yoghurt cake.

    1. Let me know if you try it Sue, and keep dry from the rain!


  7. Delicious and soft. It's a very good idea to do it with whites only. I have to try it!
