Fudgy Whole-Wheat Yogurt Cake

"A delicious, dense, chewy chocolate cake made with whole wheat flour and yogurt. Use any flavor of yogurt you want. I used strawberry and it was delicious, you could also use raspberry or vanilla or whatever else goes well with chocolate. Baking time is approximate. As one of the reviewers pointed out, it is better after it has cooled for a few hours, or even overnight. :)"

  1. I thought this was great! Light and moist. I used plain yogurt so it tastes more like a sour cream cake. To the person that hated it...you baked it too long maybe. my oven runs very hot and I adjust my temp downward quite a bit. I have to watch things carefully but this came out fine. added a vanilla buttercream frosting. my daughter loves it!!!
  2. This cake is phenomenal! Very moist, and not totally unhealthy. I even cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and butter to 1/8 cup and it was very good. I did like it better after it sat for a day, it got even more moist. I stored in the refrigerator, and topped with a mixture of yogurt and peanut butter for a peanut butter fix. Thanks a bunch!
  3. This cake was TERRIBLE!!! I cooked it for about 50 minutes at 375 (& my oven's hot!) and when I took it out, the edges were pulling away from the sides and the top was about to burn, but when I let it cool (thinking that would cook the middle a bit) and cut a piece, the inside was still wet! I thought it might at least taste good, and be like a sort of pudding cake, but it tasted awful!!! Never again!


I am originally from Colorado but now I go to the University of British Columbia getting my major in Cognitive Systems. I love to cook and share my recipes with friends and family. I also like to knit and crochet and go out for dinner and drinks with friends. I am always looking for good Mexican and Italian dishes as that is what I grew up on, but I find that good Mexican and Italian are more scarce in BC. I was a vegetarian for awhile, but now I eat poultry regularly and beef and pork if I can't avoid it or something looks too good to pass up, but as a result a lot of my recipes are vegetarian or can be made vegetarian easily. If you happen to be a vegetarian or interested in cutting some of the meat out of your diet, I highly recommend Mark Bittman's _How to Cook Everything Vegetarian_ as it is fabulous. <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
