Taste-bud Journey: Easy Yogurt Cake with Chocolate Chips

During the pandemic, I am taking taste-bud journeys as I self-isolate rather than physical journeys. Here is my adapted recipe for making a half-recipe called Easy Yogurt Cake with Chocolate Chips. It was inspired by a recipe blog by Diana Moutsopoulos. This is apparently a well-known French recipe.

Conclusion: This recipe makes either twelve full-size muffins or eighteen muffin-tops. They were definitely moist and filled with rich chocolate flavor. There is no need for icing as they are plenty rich on their own. 

I might like to try making these muffins using butterscotch chips or toffee chips. It might even be fun to try them using fruit instead of flavored chips. I could definitely make these again exactly as is. All in all, this was a very nice dessert option.

Recipe that has been halved

  • 6 tbsp plain yogurt
  • 3 tbsp grapeseed oil plus extra oil to grease the muffin tins
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips and/or M&M's

OR Here is the Whole Recipe 

  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup cooking oil plus extra oil to grease the muffin tins
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease muffin tins - enough to make 18 muffins.

  • Step 2: Empty the yogurt into a mixing bowl. Whisk in the cooking oil.

  • Step 3: Add egg, sugar, and vanilla extract to the mixture. Beat well until thoroughly combined.

  • Step 4: Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir until just combined.
  • Step 5: Stir in chopped-up chocolate chips.

  •  Step 6: Pour into the prepared muffin tins. This batter will produce 18 muffins.

  • Step 7: Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow them to cool completely before serving.
