  • 9 tablespoons vegan butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup organic granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 (5.3 ounce or 150 gram) container unflavored and unsweetened vegan yogurt, at room temperature
  • 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  2. Lightly oil the inside of a 9-inch loaf pan.

  3. Place the butter and sugar into a large mixing bowl. Beat the ingredients together using an electric mixer (or stand mixer, if preferred) at high speed for a full 2 minutes, until creamy.

  4. Beat the vanilla and yogurt into the mixture for about 1 minute, until the ingredients are fully combined.

  5. Begin beating in the flour, adding it in 3 or 4 increments. After you add the last increment to the bowl, sprinkle the baking powder, soda, and salt on top of the flour before beating everything together. Beat the batter just until combined, and be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

  6. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan.

  7. Bake the cake for 50 to 55 minutes, until the top is golden and a knife or toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  8. Place the cake on a cooling rack and let it cool completely before removing it from the pan and slicing it.
