HEALTHY GREEK YOGURT PEACH POUND CAKE
A healthier version of pound cake made with peach yogurt and healthier ingredients such as coconut oil, yogurt, peaches, and eggs.
Maybe you could call this guilt-free pound cake? The secret to the perfectly balanced peach flavor is peach Greek yogurt. It gives it a nice, light, yet very delicious flavor.
With this cake you have the option of adding 1/2 cup of diced peaches…..or not. It’s delicious and perfect without it and will be delicious and perfect with them.
Just saying if you don’t have peaches around the house there’s no need to run out and by peaches just for this recipe.
But if you don’t have peach yogurt then you will need to run out and buy peach yogurt, because that’s what makes this pound cake peachy, moist, and delicious.
To make it more healthy I used coconut oil rather than vegetable oil.
I prefer to use coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil in my recipes for a more healthy alternative and to make it a little more guilt-free.
This recipe easily comes together with peach yogurt. It adds a delicious peach flavor and makes the pound cake more moist. You will need two 5.3 oz. containers or 1 cup. My favorite brand is Chobani® but you can use whatever brand you prefer.
For this recipe don’t use the yogurt with fruit on the bottom. Plain peach flavored yogurt is all you need.
Look how moist is looks.
Be sure not to over cook this pound cake, otherwise, it will be dry. Start out by cooking it 45 minutes, if it’s not done cook it 5 more minutes. Each oven is a little different so you may even need to cook it 55 minutes, depending on how big your loaf pan is.
