There’s nothing more fun for children then letting them cook and bake. Yesterday, me and my 12 year old cousin indulged into some serious cooking and wanted to prepare a light and tasty dessert so we discovered this delicious recipe of a light chocolate and orange cake with yogurt! Believe me you will cut one slice after the other until the plate is empty!

Celine & the cake


  • 380gr flour
  • 300gr sugar
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 60gr cocoa powder
  • 250gr low-fat natural yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 tblsp balsamic vinegar
  • 250ml water
  • 120ml orange juice
  • 2 tblsp grated orange peel

Lightly butter a cake tin and dust with cocoa powder. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, bicarbonate, salt, cocoa and cinnamon. In another bowl mix the yogurt, vanilla essence, balsamic vinegar, water and orange juice. With a mixer beat all the ingredients together on low speed. Add the grated orange peel and pour into the baking tin.

After 30 – 40 minutes the cake should be ready. Leave to cool and set on a serving plate.

If you feel like you can decorate the cake with some orange juice icing. Just take 100gr icing sugar and mix it with 2 tblsp orange juice. Pour juice little at a time until the mixture is drizzly. Pour over cake and leave to set. Serve with sliced fresh oranges.

11 out of 10 for Celine! 🙂
