Day 37 – Greek Yogurt and Cake Mix


We’ve all seen one of these pins at one time or another. Add a random ingredient to a box of cake mix and magically you have a delicious cake. I’ve seen everything from pumpkin puree (which is amazing) to Diet Coke (which I refuse to try) to this one featuring Greek yogurt.


1 box cake mix (Just the mix, not all the ingredients they tell you to add to it.)

1 container of plain Greek yogurt

1 cup water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine cake mix with yogurt in a large bowl and add 1 cup water. Whisk thoroughly and transfer to a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray; bake in the oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Refer to cake-mix box for pan size and approximate bake time.

I decided to make cupcakes instead of a cake and they turned out absolutely perfect. The texture of these cupcakes is amazing. they are so velvety and smooth. I just love when I find delicious recipes that are so easy to make.

And if you are wondering what frosting I used to top these off, click here for Day 38 – Your New Favorite Frosting!

  1. Ok Kirsh….I’ve been waiting all day for the frosting recipe….I bought the cake mix and the yogurt this morning. Haha I fulled up facebook while at the grocery store this morning in hopes that you posted the recipe. I wont frost these until I hear from you :)

  2. Nice! And btw – the diet coke with chocolate cake mix IS really good – it comes out super moist and flavorful. I have no idea why. But it works! Cream soda in vanilla cake works too.

  3. What size is the container of yogurt? Way to protein-up a cupcake!! GENIUS

  4. This sounds good. The pumpkin with spice cake makes wonderful muffins.

  5. Do you bake at 350 degrees, regardless of the temperature recommendation on the box?

  6. I made these cupcakes this past weekend, but used cherry chip cake mix! Family loved them!

  7. i think you should give up your refusal to try the diet pop added to cake mix because i make it all the time and it’s delicious!! these yogurt cupcakes smell wonderful in the oven right now :)

  8. I continue to see these recipes for cake mix with greek yogurt. My only problem is: WHAT SIZE yogurt container? I went in one grocery store and found 4 sizes. I think too much or too little will make a huge difference!

  9. I found one with 1 cup of yogurt and no water.

  10. We’ll see how my cake turns out, I wanted to use the strawberry yogurt and even with a cup of water it was TOTALLY dry, I added an extra yogurt AND more water and it still was hard to get out of the bowl into my pan…we’ll see what happens :)

  11. I didn’t have any plain yogurt, so I used 6oz of reduced fat sour cream in my lemon cake mix. Also I added a cup of frozen blueberries. Yum!
