Mom’s Yummy Yogurt Cake Recipe

I brought a blueberry-blackberry yogurt cake to work today as part of a Relay for Life fundraiser, and everyone in the office is asking for the recipe, which of course, I stole from my mother. So here it is.

Mom’s Yummy Yogurt Cake

1 white cake mix and the ingredients required to make it
1 container Cool Whip (I used Light)
3 6-oz containers of the yogurt of your choice (I used 1 blueberry, 1 blackberry; mom uses strawberry)
Food coloring (optional)

The Cake
Mix up the cake mix as directed on the box. Then fold in 1 and 1/2 containers’ worth of yogurt. Add food coloring to make the batter whatever color is appropriate to the yogurt flavor. Bake the cake as directed on the box.

The Topping
Mix the Cool Whip and the remaining yogurt. Add food coloring to make it pretty.

The cake, which ends up being very moist and a bit denser than a plain white cake, needs to be refrigerated. I used light cool whip, and I suspect you could also use light yogurt without hurting the recipe. Fruit would be a pretty, healthy garnish.

Thanks mom!

    I was the lucky recipient of one of the Strawberry cakes a few weeks ago as a suprise on my birthday. This was the BEST cake I have had in many moons. It was extra special since it came from some very special friends :-). Trust me when I tell you it’s delicious!

    Oh, I don’t know. You can do lots of things with cake mixes; this one is pretty simple, admittedly, but you can also make snickerdoodles and lots of other dessert options using cake mixes.

    Another popular option with my family is a jello cake, which incorporates a packet of jello into a white cake mix somehow. I can’t remember exactly how that one goes, though.
