I remembered I made yogurt cake before and it was pretty good. A co-worker gave me a big tub of Brown Cow vanilla yogurt so it gave me an opportunity to make this cake again. I told her I am going to make a yogurt cake and give it to her. She didn't know we can use yogurt to make a cake hence just had to let her try it herself I guess. I decided on the Matcha flavor just because I liked it. This is another one bowl and a whisk recipe that I liked very much. Easy and not a lot of things to wash later. This cake is best the next day, a soft and moist cake with vanilla and matcha flavors.
