7 best tips for a soft cake

Recipe in english here


Today I'm going to share my tips on how to have soft and light cake.

For me, it is important to have a soft and light cake at the same time. The more I grow up, the more I have trouble digesting wheat flour, I have to test alternatives to gluten.

I use these tips with my yoghurt cakes as a substitute to make up for the lack or reduction of eggs in my recipes.

Yoghurt cake is my base, I make most of my cakes with this base, it's quick and easy to make. It is appreciated by everyone.


It has several advantages:

  • It's quick and easy to do.
  • It's economical.
  • I don't need a scale, I use the yoghurt pot to measure my ingredients.
  • It's soft and delicious.
  • It can go on forever, I'm having so much fun with it.
  • It's a sure thing.


My tricks to get a moist cake

  1. Mix flour and baking powder together.
  2. Mix the flour slowly so as not to activate the gluten and leaving a little bit of flour visible will help to make the cake even softer.
  3. Replace sunflower oil with olive oil.
  4. Choosing the right yoghurt: the best yoghurts are fromage blanc, Greek yoghurt, the fattier the yoghurt, the softer and more airy the cake will be. Tip: add a spoonful of fresh cream to your cake recipe. Vegan options are plain or flavoured soy, almond and coconut yoghurt. The last two are my favourites because I don't like the taste of soy.
  5. Cornstarch is excellent for making cakes lighter and softer. You have to make half flour half cornstarch.
  6. Apple or applesauce. When you use one of the two, you have to reduce the amount of oil a little or your cake will be too wet and will not cook completely, they are excellent alternatives to replace butter in baking.
  7. Baking soda, you need 1/4 teaspoon.

So these are the tips I use for my moist cakes. I'll do an article on how to make a good yogurt cake base that you can use over and over again.
