Wouldn't it be great if we could eat all the cakes and cookies we want and not put
on pounds? Sounds like an impossible dream but here's the good news – Yes, you can
have your cake and eat it too! By that, I'm referring to low-fat cakes.
Many people are skeptical when it comes to low-fat cakes and bakes; they think low-fat
results in crumbly, dry and bland cakes. It's not true; low-fat cakes can still taste
good with ingredients such as fruit, low-fat margarine, non-fat or low-fat yogurt
and other healthy substitutes.
Here's an awesome low fat orange yogurt recipe that will perk up you even on the
bleakest dieting day! It's wonderfully light and moist that you can't believe it's
Low Fat Orange Yogurt Cake Recipe
2½ cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
⅓cup low-fat margarine
¾ cup Splenda®
zest of 1 orange
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup low-fat yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons orange juice
How to make low fat yogurt cake
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease or line a 8" x 4" loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt;
Combine yogurt, vanilla extract and orange juice in another bowl; mix well.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter and orange zest for 1 minute. Add in sugar and
continue to beat on high speed for about 3 minutes.
Add in eggs gradually, a little at a time, and beat mixture for about 2 minutes.
Reduce speed to low, beat in ⅓ of the flour mixture. Then increase speed to medium-high,
beat in ½ of the yogurt mixture.
Reduce to low speed again, beat in half of the remaining flour mixture. Next, on
high speed, beat in the remaining yogurt mixture.
Lastly, back to low speed, beat in the rest of the flour mixture.
Transfer cake mixture into the prepared pan and bake for about 40 to 45 minutes or
until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
