This super moist cake made with olive oil. Olive oil does have a stronger flavour than some other oils, which might affect the flavour of the baked product. You might want to try using half olive oil and half grapeseed oil, which also works great in baking.

The yoghurt is an excellent dairy to bake with. It will add moisture and a slight tang to the cake. Choose yoghurt with a thick and creamy consistency.
