Basic yogurt bundt cake with a swirl of cocoa powder. The easiest one-bowl cake with a fancy look ever!


  • 3 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 and 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 and 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder or extract
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa powder


  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C)
  2. Butter a 9 inch bundt pan.
  3. Beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer until creamy.
  4. Add in olive oil and yogurt and mix well.
  5. Sift the flour directly into the mixing bowl and mix with a spatula.
  6. Add in baking powder and vanilla powder or extract and stir well. Don’t overmix though. Just until everything combines.
  7. Pour 3/4 of the batter in the pan.
  8. Fold in the cocoa powder to the remaining batter and mix well. It will be thicker, but don’t worry. It will be great when baked.
  9. Pour this dark batter right on the plain batter in the pan. Swirl randomly with a fork and bake for 45 minutes.
  10. Let it cool down for 15 minutes and then remove from the pan.
  11. Dust with powdered sugar and cocoa powder when it cools down completely.
