  • Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  • Grease the bundt cake pan very thoroughly. Sprinkle with a light dusting of flour. Shake off excess flour.

Making The Batter

  • To make the batter, add vanilla yogurt, vegetable oil, and egg yolks into a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until well combined.
  • Add sugar and continue to beat until very creamy.
  • Add flour, baking powder, and salt and continue to mix until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl whisk egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Carefully fold the stiff egg whites into the batter.


  • Pour the batter into the bundt cake pan. Bake at 350° Fahrenheit for 55 minutes on the middle rack. Use a toothpick to check for doneness.
  • Allow the cake to cool. Once cool to the touch (about 20 minutes) flip the cake pan upside down and transfer onto a wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
