Gâteau au Yahourt – 20 seconds Yoghurt Cake

With Caramelised Apples

This recipe is a huge success from Yolaine Corbin on the Recipe community page.

Just in case you haven’t seen it here it is for you.

Please find from Thermie Living some ideas for ingredient substitutes if you want to make it a little bit healthier 😉






165g raw sugar (coconut sugar – it will change the colour of the cake and also the flavour, but worth to try)

Zest of 1 lemon

2 eggs

180g yoghurt

130g vegetable oil (Macadamia nut oil – more expensive, but one of the healthiest alternatives for light oils)

1 tsp vanilla extract

¼ tsp salt

275g plain flour

1 ½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp Bicarb of soda


Caramelized apples:

3 granny smith apples, cored and peeled, cut into thin wedges (about 16 for each apple)

40g brown sugar (coconut sugar)

40g salted butter



Caramelized Apples (Optional, this cake is delicious Natural as well):

Slice each quarter of apple into about 3 or 4 even slices.

Put all the ingredients in the TM bowl and cook for 12 min at 110C reverse soft stir (spoon) without the MC on.

Pour the caramelized apples onto a greased cake tin and spread evenly to cover the bottom.


20 Seconds Yoghurt Cake Batter:

Put all the batter ingredients into the TM bowl (if you have made the caramelized apples, you don’t even need to wash the bowl, extra flavour!) and blend for 20 seconds on Speed 5.

Check that the mix is homogenous (scape the bowl and mix a few extra seconds if not) and pour into the prepared tins on top of the apples (if used).

Bake at 170C for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out dry.


Enjoy with vanilla ice cream, Sour cream or a dollop of creamy yoghurt.



This is such an easy and versatile cake, you can really make it whatever you want!

Adding fruit to this cake is an option, it is traditionally eaten just as is for “gouter” (afternoon tea) in France and really popular with kids. My little 6yo can indeed do it all by herself 🙂

You can also be creative and seasonal when adding fruits. pineapple, pear, peach, mango, prunes, plums, raspberries, cherries are all great combination with this cake.

You may also want to substitute lemon rind/juice with Orange, and why not add some chocolate chips for a Jaffa twist.
