Rhubarb and yoghurt cake recipe

There's no need to cook the rhubarb before adding it to this delicious rhubarb and yoghurt cake batter. Just mix it all together and pop it in the oven for a quick, simple sweet treat.

Serving Size:

Serves 8-12



  • 1/2 cup (125g) unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups (335g) caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
  • 1 cup (260g) natural yoghurt
  • 2 cups sliced rhubarb


Preheat oven to 190°C (170°C fan-forced). Grease and line a 22-24cm springform cake pan and set aside.

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well between each. Add flour and yoghurt and beat until just combined. Stir through rhubarb.

Pour into tin, spreading it evenly with a spatula, then place in oven and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.


  • Serve with pouring cream or a dollop of thick yoghurt.
  • Be sure to wash rhubarb well and remove leaves before slicing.
