  • 1/4th cup Yoghurt at room temperature
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 3/4th stick Softened Butter
  • 1 cup + 2tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3/4th cup milk at room temperature
  • ½ cup Sugar


  • 1 and ½ cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 and ½ stick Softened Butter
  • Heavy Cream for loose frosting
  • Sprinkles
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Salt

Instructions To Prepare The Cake


  • Take a bowl, add softened butter, vanilla extract and sugar to that bowl. Mix them to form the cream.
  • Now add yoghurt to that mixture and combine well.
  • Take another bowl, add dry ingredients like baking powder and all-purpose flour. Mix them well.
  • Now, add the dry mixture to the cream along with milk in parts and combine well. Do not overbeat the mixture; it will turn into a bread texture and not cake.
  • To prepare the birthday cake, you need to preheat the oven. Now, line the 8-9 inches cake pan with parchment paper and add the mixture.
  • At high power, place the cake pan into the microwave for about 5-8 minutes. First, for 5 minutes, keep the cake and check with the toothpick whether the cake is baked or not.
  • If not in 5 minutes, then continue baking for 2-3 minutes more at high temperature.
  • Once the cake is baked, let it cool for 10-15 minutes before frosting.


  • Take a bowl and beat vanilla extract and butter until softened and fluffy.
  • Once done, add powdered sugar to it and continue beating it until a smooth cream is formed.
  • If you want to prepare a loose frosting, then you can add heavy cream to it.
  • Now, take the cake and cover it completely.
  • Add sprinkles at the sides, and it is ready to serve.

*You can prepare the frosting of the birthday cake one week ahead of time and keep it in an air-tight container. Before using, bring it to room temperature and whip again.*
