Italian Torta Margherita

Very easy and tasty cake. Last minute idea, when you have a craving for a cake ;)The only thing I needed to buy to prepare it was a greek yoghurt ;) So the cost of preparing it is automatically low too :) Recipe comes from all over the Internet, containing some Italian websites (for example: , :)


  • 300 g of greek yoghurt
  • 300 g of sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 150 g of oil
  • 600 g of flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 16 g of vanilla sugar
  • 200-500 g of fruit - plums, apples, nectarine, pear (preffered harder ones, not very juicy)
  • some butter
  • powdered sugar or icing sugar

Optional ingredients:
  • 2-3 teaspoons zest of a lemon (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  1. Wash, peel and chop the fruit into wedges.
  2. Start heating the oven to 200C.
  3. Take a big bowl.
  4. Put yoghurt and sugar inside, add eggs and stir. Add oil and stir again.
  5. Add flour, baking powder and optional ingredients (if desired). Stir everything.
  6. Add fruit and stir again.
  7. Take a springform cake tin (though I used fluted cake ring) grease it thoroughly.
  8. Put the dough in a tin and bake for 30-40 minutes in 200C.*
  9. Check, by using a toothpick if the cake is ready (put the toothpick as deep as possible, to get sure).
  10. Take it out from the oven, cool down, then overturn the cake and by tapping, take it out from the form.
  11. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or icing sugar.
  12. Bon Appetit! :)
* The top of the cake may start getting burnt very fast because the oven is already preheated. To prevent your cake, when you notice it starts burning, put a piece of foil on the entire top of the cake.
