Peach and Blueberry Greek Yogurt Cake made in a springform pan – you couldn’t find an easier recipe for such a colorful, beautiful cake!
Greek yogurt works great in cakes and ensures a nice, smooth texture, as well as it is a good substitute for some portion of butter.
I love baking with Greek yogurt and avoiding using as much butter as I can get away with. In this recipe for a peach and blueberry Greek yogurt cake, you’ll be using 2 oz of softened butter and 1/2 cup Greek yogurt to produce a full size 9 inch diameter cake. Not too much butter, yet the texture does not suffer. In fact, I prefer the texture that Greek yogurt creates in a cake than if I just use butter.
Greek yogurt works amazingly well in cakes. It provides a beautiful texture, makes cakes moist, and is also a good substitute for some portion of butter. Try this Peach and Blueberry Greek Yogurt Cake and see for yourself!
Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle. Grease the side and the bottom of the pan with butter or cooking spray. Line the bottom of a 9×3-inch springform pan (or 9 inch round cake pan) with parchment paper. Grease the parchment paper too.
Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, together into a medium bowl.
In a separate bowl, beat butter, sugar, and 2 eggs until very light in color and fluffy, 2-3 minutes on high speed. Add vanilla and Greek yogurt and continue beating until very creamy and light in color, for about 1 more minute.
Keeping the mixer speed low, mix in the flour mix until combined. Do not overmix.
Transfer the cake batter to the springform pan. Top with sliced peaches, and scatter blueberries evenly on top in the spaces between the peach slices. Sprinkle the fruit with 1 teaspoon granulated sugar.
Bake until cake turns golden, and the tester comes out clean in the center, about 1 hour, depending on your oven. Midway through baking, I like to put some extra peach slices and extra blueberries on top of the cake for prettiness, and return cake to baking.
When the cake is done baking, let it cool (still in the baking pan) on a wire rack. After cake has cooled for about 40 minutes, release the cake from the springform pan. At this point, if the cake is cool enough, you can slide your hand under the cake, between the parchment paper and the bottom portion of the springform pan and move the cake with the parchment paper attached to its bottom onto a cake plate easily.
If using a 9 inch round cake pan, cook in pan for about 40 minutes or more (up to 1 hour, depending on your oven), then invert onto a plate.
