A fruity twist on a Traditional French Yogurt Cake, this Triple Berry Yogurt Cake is perfect for tea time playdates or as a light dessert – and just like the original, kids can make this cake almost completely independently with just a bit of help when it comes to the oven bit.
I participated in Mom Blog Tour Natural Products Expo West (#MomBlogTourFF) on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Wyman’s of Maine products to facilitate my review, but my opinions and creative content are my own.
Berry Yogurt Cake Recipe
Yogurt Cakes are traditionally one of the first cakes French children learn how to make, using a simple yogurt pot as a non-standard unit of measurement to make a simple, moist cake that they can proudly serve up to their families for dessert or tea time.
I’ve always loved making this recipe with my daycare kids – you don’t have to fuss with different measuring cups, and with only 5 main ingredients we have always had good results (even when a bit of flour or sugar falls outside of the bowl when pouring or stirring).
This recipe is so incredibly simple that my 6 year old daughter can now make it independently without any help from me – or a recipe card!
This time, we decided to add some berries into the batter for a fruit-packed tea cake – wild blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.
I always have 2-3 bags of Wyman’s of Maine fruit in my freezer and am so excited to be partnering with them on this recipe. The quality of their fruit is amazing – picked and flash-frozen at the peak of freshness so you’re actually getting more nutrients and flavor than the fresh berries at the grocery store (which are typically picked before they are fully ripened to ensure they aren’t spoiled by the time they reach stores).
One 3lb bag is the same cost as getting 1-2 small pints of fresh berries, and obviously they last much longer, too. We use them to make fruit smoothies or add a scoop to baked goods whenever we can. Ella also likes eating them frozen – and when I send a scoop of them along in her lunch box they are thawed by lunchtime so she can stir into yogurt or eat with a spoon.
(I also like adding them instead of ice cubes in cocktails or a glass of wine since they add flavor and don’t water things down – and I also recently used their Tropical Coconut Blend to make Tropical Wine Slushies!)

How to Make a Traditional Yogurt Cake
Preheat oven to 350F
Grease and line your loaf pan or small cake pan.
Combine all ingredients except the fruit in a large bowl, and stir well with a spoon until all ingredients are well mixed together and no dry patches of flour remain.
Gently stir in the fruit, then pour the cake batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-35 minutes, until lightly browned on top and an inserted toothpick or cake tester comes out clean.
Note: to prevent any marbling of the batter (the berries dying the batter), coat the berries with a couple Tablespoon of flour before stirring into the batter.
