The yogurt and chocolate cake is a sweet dessert, with an irresistible aroma: yogurt and seed oil make this cake very soft, while chocolate gives an aromatic and delicious note.

You can use the yogurt and chocolate cake also as a base for cakes: it is useful to every filling. Here's how to prepare it in just a few steps!
Chop the dark chocolate (1) and melt it in a bain-marie or in the microwave, mix it from time to time until it is completely melted. As soon as it is ready, let it cool down. (2) In a bowl, place the eggs with the sugar (3) and work with a whisk or in a planetary mixer until obtaining a frothy mixture.
Now add the yogurt (4) a little at a time. As soon as it is well combined, the essence of vanilla and then the seed oil. Mix well and add the flour sifted with baking powder a little at a time: as soon as it is well absorbed, add the melted chocolate and continue to work the dough, until it is smooth and homogeneous. Grease a 24 cm cake tin and cover it with parchment paper: pour the dough inside (5) and level it with a spatula. Bake in preheated oven at 170 degrees for about 45 minutes: always do the toothpick test before taking it out of the oven. If you use the ventilated oven, heat it to 150 ° C and cook for about 35 minutes. Once ready, take it out of the oven and leave it to cool. You can then sprinkle with powdered sugar, or taste it as it is. Your yogurt and chocolate cake is ready to be served. (6)
Always let the melted chocolate cool down, before adding it to the other ingredients, to avoid "cooking" the eggs and compromising the leavening.
To get an even softer cake, you can replace the classic yogurt with Greek yogurt, even more creamy.
Those who prefer can replace the essence of vanilla with grated orange peel.
