Rhubarb Yogurt Loaf with Noosa Strawberry Rhubarb Yogurt

June 1, 2016(updated on August 30, 2021)

The finished rhubarb yogurt loaf cake with a cup of Noosa yoghurt.

A couple of weeks ago, the folks from Noosa sent me a box full of their strawberry rhubarb yoghurt (they’re from Australia) as a way to celebrate National Strawberry Month. Now, I don’t really need an excuse to celebrate strawberries, as I typically spend most of the spring in thrall to them, but I was happy for the excuse to indulge even more.

I’ve been eating my way through the containers of sweet, creamy yogurt, but thought it would be nice to do a little baking with it. A rhubarb yogurt loaf cake is what sprang to mind. Dorie Greenspan’s yogurt loaf is my starting place any time I want to make a quick snacking cake with yogurt (one version is here).

I reduced the sugar to compensate for the sweetened yogurt, used white whole wheat for a bit of extra healthfulness, arranged some frozen rhubarb on top, and then dusted the whole thing with a packet of turbinado sugar for a little crunch. The finished cake is tender, mildly sweet, and perfect for breakfast, afternoon snacking, or a late night nibble.

  1. looks like a typo — the Noosa is listed in the ingredients as jam, but should be yogurt. Sounds like an interesting cake, though I might try making with plain yogurt and a bit of strawberry or strawberry-rhubarb jam.

    This time of year, what I really need is recipes for using up last year’s jam or even jam from the year before last — NW Edible Life’s idea of making ice cream from one half-pint jam, one cup heavy cream, and one cup milk is a good one, but more ideas like the apple butter barbecue sauce would be very much appreciated.

    • Thank you for catching that! I’m so used to typing jam after the words strawberry rhubarb! And I hear you on more ideas for using up preserves.

  2. I was blown away when I first tried this yogurt. If you have not tried the lemon, I urge you to do so. It is like nothing else I have ever tried!
