Blueberry Yogurt Cake for Kids
I first learned about this easy blueberry yogurt cake recipe in a parenting book I read before I actually had kids, called Bringing Up Bebé. The original didn’t have blueberries, but it was an easy addition for me. It’s a classic French recipe that is one of the first things that parents make with their kids. The fun part about the recipe is that you need very little equipment to make the recipe and you use yogurt containers to measure the ingredients.
Of course, the goal with a recipe like this is to get kids exciting about cooking and also start teaching them the basics of measuring and stirring. Sadly, more than half of kids’ schools in the U.S. don’t offer any sort of culinary classes, so many kids never get to learn about cooking and why it’s so important to living a happy and healthy life.
That’s why I’m super excited to partner with Pampered Chef and Big Green for their fall Classroom Kitchen campaign! The goal is to deliver cooking education materials to over 150,000(!) kids in just TWO MONTHS. Let’s DO IT.
This is how it works.
If you host a fundraiser party for a school-affiliated program in the next month, Pampered Chef will give back in three ways.
- MONEY FOR YOUR SCHOOL – 10-15% of sales go directly to whatever your group needs (doesn’t have to be cooking supplies)!
- COOKING EDUCATION – You can earn a Classroom Kitchen Kit that ranges in value from $150-$900!
- EDUCATION FOR A SCHOOL IN NEED – When your school receives a kit, Pampered Chef sends an additional kit to Big Green to supply an underserved school with curriculum materials!
As a partner, I got to receive the same kit that classrooms and educators are receiving, but all of these products are available online or through your local consultant. I used the kit they sent me to make this Yogurt Cake as well as a quick and simple salad.
I can’t wait to start using the kid-friendly tools to help my two kids start learning about cooking!
Sign up to host a party and help kids learn about cooking!
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, stir together yogurt, sugar, and eggs. Then stir in flour, baking powder, salt, and melted butter. Batter will be fairly thick.
2) Fold in blueberries and scrape batter into a 9×5 loaf pan that has been greased or lightly buttered.
3) Bake cake for 45-50 minutes, rotating once halfway through, until a tester comes out clean.
4) Allow cake to cool for a few minutes and then remove from the pan and serve either warm or at room temperature.
Leftovers keep fine for a few days wrapped tightly in plastic wrap.
Blueberry Yogurt Cake
This cake is really easy to make and it’s perfect for little hands to help. It starts with a yogurt container and a mixing bowl! All the recipe basics (yogurt, sugar, flour, blueberries) are measured using the yogurt container!
Mix the batter together and it’ll be a pretty thick batter.
Then fold in the blueberries and transfer it to a lightly buttered or greased loaf pan. This will need to bake at 350 degrees for about 45-50 minutes to cook through.
Let’s talk gear in the meantime! This classroom kitchen set from Pampered Chef has tons of great stuff including mixing bowls, measuring gear, knifes, and fun mats.
It would be a great kit for any classroom to learn the basics of cooking.
I particularly like the different mats which cram a ton of useful information into a fairly small size. I even learned a few things, honestly!
I also loved the kid-friendly grater which I used to make a little shredded beet salad. Looks like cheese but it’s golden beets!
Ding! My cake is done.
Love the crackly crust on it.
Let this blueberry yogurt cake cool before slicing it up. It’s a pretty dense cake, but very good. It went fast at our house!
