Greek yogurt in the batter makes this yogurt poppy seed cake incredibly moist, fresh, and flavorful. Is it strange that I’m not ready for Fall yet? The weather has gone weird lately as we’re approaching the end of September but the temperature is still showing 100°F during the day. Though I’ve been enjoying some pumpkin recipes at home, I must say that I still want to prolong Summer days. Weird, eh?
In this kind of weather, I am hesitant to enter the kitchen, but nevertheless, my baking quota has doubled this month compared to any other month. This was because of the birthday party we had last weekend and I was quite pleased with the result.
I am glad that I always stock our fridge with yogurt, especially Chobani, because it is convenient, delicious, and healthy for breakfast or anytime in between during this extreme weather condition. And on most nights when we crave for something sweet to clean our palate, we grab another scoop or two… or a small container of Chobani. Yes, it is that good!
Today I’ll be sharing with you a cake recipe that use Chobani, the yogurt poppyseed cake with chocolate drizzle on top. The cake was originally made using white chocolate glaze but I just could not find the right measurement and after few attempts I decided to keep it simple.
Plain Chobani Greek Yogurt adds creamy texture and delicious flavor to this cake. You could also enjoy the coconut flakes, so if you’re a coconut lover, this cake is definitely for you! Now it’s time to get creative in your kitchen! Check out Chobani for a variety of recipes using Greek yogurt and tell me what will you #MadeWithChobani this Fall?
