Substituting yogurt for milk in cake recipe

  • f
  • 1

I am asking all of you experimental bakers out there for help--I am making a lemon cake--the ingredients are sugar, oil, lemon zest, eggs, semolina flour, baking powder, ground almonds and whole milk. I'd like to substitute 1/2 cup yogurt for the milk if possible. Do you think this will affect the cake negatively?

  1. It is going to bring an acid to the cake like buttermilk would and that while giving a tender crumb would change the leavening properties. You will need to add some baking soda to compensate for it.
