Grapefruit and Almond Yogurt Cake

Grapefruit and Almond Yogurt Cake

Airy and zesty, this versatile cake works as breakfast, snack, or dessert. Using yogurt as the dairy source makes the resulting cake springy yet moist. Grapefruit juice, zest, and raspberries give it a refreshing balance of sweet and tart. You won’t fall into any sugar comas here, so go for that second slice.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

to make a mug of hot tea


  • ¾ cup (90g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (100g) brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 1 tablespoon grapefruit zest
  • cup (80ml) grapefruit juice
  • cup (80g) plain greek yogurt
  • 8 raspberries, plus extra for decorating
  • 2 teaspoons slivered almonds, toasted 
  • powdered sugar


  1. In a separate medium bowl, mix all the ingredients together except the almonds and powdered sugar.
  2. Grease the Anyday dish with butter or non-stick spray. (If you’d like to unmold the cake after cooking, line the bottom with a fitted piece of parchment paper).
  3. Pour the batter into the Anyday. Sprinkle the slivered almonds on top.
  4. Cook uncovered in the microwave for 5-6 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. If the cake looks slightly undercooked, continue cooking in 1-minute intervals. Let rest with the lid on for 5 minutes, which helps ensure the cake can unmold without breaking.
  5. Let cool for 5 minutes. Decorate with extra raspberries and a dusting of powdered sugar to serve. 

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Enjoy the cake as an afternoon snack or serve with ice cream or whipped cream for a quick dessert.
