The recipe that I propose today is simple and fast, but incredibly good that will leave you amazed! As soon as you wake up in the morning, it floods the house with its sweet aroma and is perfect when soaked in milk.

In addition, it is also ideal for your children’s snacks. In fact, it is made with simple and natural ingredients such as yogurt, fruit, eggs, and flour that make it special with every bite.

I chose to make it with raspberries and bananas which are a combination that I really love. However, the recipe is versatile and you can modify it with the ingredients you like best.

The only care you must have before preparing it is that the ingredients must preferably all be at room temperature.

Tools Needed

This fluffy raspberry and yogurt plumcake is so easy you can make it in just one bowl.

To make it you will need:

A Deep Mixing Bowl

An Immersion Hand Blender

A Professional Silicone Spatula

Parchment Paper (if you don’t want to grease the pan)

A Rectangular nonstick Loaf Pan (for this recipe, I used a 26 cm long one).

A Plumcake inspired by lightness

The Raspberry and Yogurt Plumcake is light and genuine. For this, you can also adopt it in diets or nutritions that are low in calories.
To make the recipe lighter, I eliminated the butter and replaced it with vegetable oil.

Also instead of milk, I used Greek Yogurt, because it is naturally fat-free and rich in enzymes.

Finally, I used part of the whole wheat flour to give it more fiber richness. however, if you prefer you can replace the flour with whatever you prefer.

There are so many reasons why I love this recipe.
First of all, I am a big fan of the combination of sour raspberries with the sweetness of bananas. Secondly, the soft and moist texture of the dough literally makes my taste buds explode. Finally, I find that its crunchy crust is truly irresistible.


This tasty recipe can also be made in a Vegan Version.

In this case, just replace the 2 eggs with 2 bananas or with 2 grated apples. In fact, Apple is a valid vegetable alternative to eggs because added to the dough it is able to form a gelatinous and compact mass.

Then, if you want to avoid sugar, you can replace it with honey, or with agave or maple syrup. In this case, the proportions must be changed as follows:
– To replace sugar with honey, use 20% less than what the recipe calls for. For example, my recipe provides 100 g of sugar, you can replace it with 80 g of honey.

– Syrups also have a higher sweetening power than sugar. The right proportion to replace 100g of sugar is to use 75g. of syrup.
