This homemade Greek Yogurt Vanilla Pound Cake is so simple to make. The texture is dense, tender and moist and the flavor is wonderful. We like to serve it with strawberries and fresh whipped cream.

One of my favorite simple desserts my mom would make during spring and summer was homemade pound cake with strawberries and fresh whipped cream. Nothing fancy, but sometimes the simplest desserts are the best! (Like fresh peaches over ice cream…YUM). This Greek Yogurt Vanilla Pound Cake is delicious. It’s perfectly sweet, but not overly sweet. It gets slightly crisp on the outside while being super soft on the inside. I could eat it for breakfast!

    This pound cake is delicious! I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and it was still fantastic. I’m certain it is healthier than a store-bought version. We served it with strawberries and whipped cream.

  2. I have non-fat greek vanilla yogurt that I need to use up. I can just leave the other vanilla out of the recipe but do you think I need to worry about the “non=fat” part of my greek yogurt?

    Amazing! I cannot bake and let me tell you… I followed the recipe and wow! It came out fantastic! I danced to see how beautiful it looked coming out and it was just perfect!
    Very simple instructions that I have already memorized it and can make it 1 2 3.

    1. I have not tested it with regular yogurt. I’m sorry but I can’t say with confidence that it would work out.
      Sour Cream would be a better substitute.

  4. Have this baking in oven now. I doubled recipe and put in bunds pan. Also used lemon zest and a squeeze of the juice. Will let you know how it works out.

  5. Do you think I could freeze this? I need to use up alot of Greek yogurt, so I was thinking about making two and freezing one. Thanks!
