Blueberry Yogurt Cake

It’s no secret that I like fruit. Peaches, strawberries, raspberries…they’ve all made their way onto my blog for some delicious recipes this summer. I love baking with fresh fruit anytime of the year, but during the summer, it’s a must for me. Since I visit my local farmer’s market just about every weekend, I have no excuse as to why I can’t bake with some ripe and delicious produce.

But one fruit that I haven’t baked with this season is blueberries. Well, that’s about to change, friends! After debating on whether I wanted to make muffins, bread, or cupcakes, I finally decided on cake. Blueberry Yogurt Cake! The name just about says it all. Fresh blueberries and creamy blueberry yogurt give this cake a deliciously moist texture, full of blueberry flavor. It’s pure blueberry bliss!

This Blueberry Yogurt Cake bakes up thick, soft, and super moist. It’s seriously the best cake I have ever made, or tasted, with fresh fruit in it. The juicy blueberries give this cake a bright pop of color and burst into your mouth with tons of flavor. Adding in blueberry Greek yogurt, instead of plain yogurt, gives the cake even more blueberry goodness. This cake stays moist for days and slices well, too.

    I too Gayle am a total fruit addict! I need therapy asap. But blueberries are my favorite fruit in baked good, they’re just the right size and shape in all their perfect roundness, right? Good thing we picked roughly 20 pounds of blueberries the other day (ok, we’re freezing some) but I still can’t believe how many we’re eating fresh.

    I love the Greek blueberry yogurt addition, gives it a little added protein too, right? Love all the blueberries just oozing out of this. And the yellow plate you used.

      I love baking with blueberries, too! Besides being delicious, they’re also easy to bake with, no chopping or dicing required! Sounds like you’re all set with blueberries for a while, Laura! I’m sure you will put those to good use. And yes, the yogurt definitely gives this cake some protein, and makes it moist, too!

      I love making fruit desserts, but especially in the summer, it just tastes better! This cake was so easy to make and so full of flavor, especially with the addition of yogurt!

    • Gayle says

      Thanks, Mir! I was so impressed with the texture of this cake, way too addicting for me! And I’m already dreading when the farmer’s markets are done for the summer. But let’s be in denial for now and pretend it’s only June! :)

      I love sneaking in yogurt whenever I bake, makes it a bit healthier and a lot more moist. And I tried to cram this cake full of blueberries since summer is slowly winding down!

    • Gayle says

      Thanks so much for the kind words, Sarah! I had such a hard time not eating the entire cake by myself, it was just that good!

      I love extra blueberry flavor, so the yogurt added that and moisture. It’s probably the moistest and most delicious blueberry cake that I’ve eaten. And a great way to use up those farmer’s market blueberries!

      I couldn’t wait to use all of the blueberries I bought from the farmer’s market, Denise! And the yogurt just gave this cake an added touch!

    • Gayle says

      Thanks for the kind words, Kathi! I feel that it’s almost necessary to double the blueberries in the summer!

    • Gayle says

      I like your thinking, Lindsey! You can definitely have more than one slice since it’s lightened up with yogurt!

    • Gayle says

      Thanks, Michele! I will be sad to see the farmer’s market end, I love stocking up on fresh produce! I hope you like this cake if you try it!
