Chocolate/ Sweet Snacks/ Breakfast

Zebra yoghurt poundcake

What if we baked a good afternoon snack? Something simple, but amazingly efficient? What if it was without butter? (the situation is still very tense in many of the French supermarkets on this matter).

So if we were to bake such sweet treat, I would recommend the zebra yoghurt poundcake. A delicious yoghurt poundcake with a perfectly balanced dose of cocoa! And that’s it!

And if you don’t eat it entirely in the afternoon, please know that 1) You can keep it a few days (with an aluminum foil on the slice) and 2) it’s a delight for breakfast!

I think I won’t describe anymore how great this zebra yoghurt cake is. Let’s do this! Bring it on! The recipe, Chef!

Serves: 8-10 Difficulty: Easy Price: $
Cooking Time: 1 hour 15 min


  • 125 g plain yoghurt
  • 115 g sunflower oil
  • 315 g sugar
  • 280 g flour
  • 10 g baking powder
  • 25 g cocoa (no sugar)
  • 3 eggs
  • Iced sugar



Preheat your oven at 160 degrees.


If you have a food processor (KitchenAid, Thermomix, ...), put all the ingredients in the bowl and mix at medium speed for 30 secondes.


If you don't have a food processor, mix the yoghurt with the oil and sugar.


Add the flour and baking powder.


Add the eggs, ons by one.


Pour half of the batter in a bowl and add the cocoa. Mix.


Pour half of the non-chocolate pastry in your buttered mold, then half of the chocolate pastry.


Do it again.


Take a knife and go back and forth in the length of the mold to mix lightly the mixtures.


Bake for 1 hour.


At the end, check if your cake is baked enough with a knife.


Unmold and let cool down on a grid.


Spread iced sugar for decoration.


You are of course allowed to add chocolate chips if you wish ... 😉

    Bonjour Emmanuelle,
    Je fais souvent ce gâteau et c’est toujours un succès. Je me demandais si vous l aviez essayé en muffin et quelle cuisson vous recommanderiez?
    Merci d avance

      Bonjour Julie,
      Oui vous pouvez tenter sans souci. passez à 25 min de cuisson. Piquez avec un petit pic en bois pour vérifier la cuisson à la fin.
      Bon weekend !

    Bonjour, depuis 3 semaines, ce gâteau me faisait de l’œil sans avoir l’occasion de le réaliser. Aujourd’hui c’est fait : il est vraiment extra ! Encore légèrement tiède, c’est trop dur de résister… Merci pour cette recette géniale.
