Greek Yogurt Coffee Cake

I've never been a huge fan of Greek yogurt, but the new Yoplait Greek blended yogurts are something I can get behind! I used their Greek vanilla blended yogurt in this coffee cake, and it was so delicious! The coffee cake was super moist, and I loved the extra vanilla-y flavor. The other blended flavors would be delicious in smoothies, especially the pineapple or coconut! Happy Monday :)

Greek Yogurt Coffee Cake
1 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened 
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

for the topping:
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
pinch of salt

In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar. Add in the egg and vanilla extract, beating until combined. Add in the flour mixture. Add the greek yogurt and mix until just combined.

To make the topping, stir together all the ingredients until well combined.

In a lightly buttered loaf pan, pour in the batter. Spoon the topping mixture over the top of the batter. Bake at 325 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. You'll notice that a lot of the topping will end up at the bottom of the coffee cake. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.

  1. nice! i like using yogurt/sour cream/buttermilk in baked goods like these as it keeps them very moist. good idea to use vanilla flavored!

  2. I went to a bday party for a friend of Nolan's and the mom used Greek yogurt in these chocolate cupcakes and they were sooo good! I had no idea!
