  • 1 Cake mix box
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (or what the box calls for)
  • 1 cup water (or what the box calls for)
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour, optional (see notes)


  • Preheat oven to 350º F. Lightly grease the cake pan.
  • In a large bowl mix cake mix, water, oil, yogurt, and flour, if using, until everything is well combined, about 2 minutes.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake, as directed on the box, or until a toothpick inserted in the center, comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before unmolding. Cool completely before frosting.



Since as I'm not using eggs, I like to add 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour to add more structure to the cake. After a lot of testing, I found out that when I don't add the flour the cake is too fluffy and difficult to frost/decorate. So, adding the flour is totally optional but highly recommended.
I have tested this recipe with American cake mixes (around 450 gr per box), such as Betty Crocker, Pillsbury and Duncan Hines. 
To make this 2-layer cake I use two cake mix boxes.
Bake time suggestion:
Two 9" round pan = 25 - 30 minutes
One 13" x 9" pan = 28 - 35 minutes
Bundt pan = 38 -45 minutes
Cupcakes = 12 -18 minutes
