Yogurt / poppy seed cake

The famous yogurt cake, it's my favorite cake, simple, light, effective ! The best !

I made this cake a lot when I was vegetarian, and I continued when I became vegan by adapting the recipe.

No need to complicate life, eggs are not essential in a cake. You will also find on the L214 website all the information you need to replace eggs in your dishes.

Historical anecdote: The cake appeared in France in 1950 after the generalization of yogurt in 1945 after the end of the Second World War.

The traditional recipe is very basic: flour, sugar, oil, eggs, yeast and lemon zest.

We will therefore stay in the same spirit a basic, delicious to consume at breakfast, as a snack or as a dessert. (it's also allowed during the coffee break ;) )
