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 is my second time making this and my husband and I absolutely love it. It’s simple and easy to make and it turns out divine. This one definitely will go into my A+Done and then some recipe folder meaning it’s a keeper and I don’t wanted lost in a sea of recipes. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Yes, you can substitute butter with oil in your recipe. Use 1/3 cup of oil for every 1/2 cup of butter. Choose a neutral oil like canola or vegetable oil to avoid altering the cake’s flavor. This substitution may make your cake more moist and tender, but you’ll lose some of the buttery flavor.

    So good! We couldn’t stop eating it right out of the oven. I’m sure some fresh berries and whipped cream would make it even more delicious, but it’s perfect on its own! Lightly sweet with a slightly caramelized exterior and fluffy inside. I’ll definitely make this again.

    I love this recipe! I made it almost every week during my last trimester this summer and everyone I made it for loved it. It’s not really too sweet, so it’s perfect with summer berries and fresh whipped cream. It’s one of my favorite desserts to make and bring to an event now.

  4. Also I’d Like to Add some lemon zest or lemon juice with the blueberries. Will this hold up in this recipe? Looking for a recipe to Use my vanilla greek non-fat yogurt plus my frozen blueberries but I also want a lemon flavor. Do Not have Baking Powder & this is Y I wanted to Try this Recipe due 2 No baking powder Needed. Ty so much for any help!

    This is delicious! Have made it twice since Christmas, adding cranberries and orange zest and a glaze on top. It’s dense and moist and fabulous! Thank you!

    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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

    1. I’m anxious to hear about putting in lemon zest and juice. I’m making this today and have a lemon glaze recipe that I use on Greek yogurt cookies. I want to glaze the top of this pound cake. What do you think? Joan

  10. 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!
