When I was a kid, my mom made an easy yogurt bundt cake with a recipe very similar to this. The best part about this cake besides the very pleasant taste is that it can be adapted in many ways.
One of my favorite variations is adding orange (add the zest of an orange and 2 tablespoons of juice), poppy flavor (add 1/4 cup of poppy seeds) or walnuts (add 1/2 cup of walnuts). Also for its tight crumb lends itself perfect to be toasted and serve with butter, Nutella, Dulce de Leche, fruits or marmalades. Very versatile.
This recipe uses oil instead of butter, very practical if you have not removed the butter from the fridge to soften, with the oil one is always ready and produces a soft, moist cake.
* Updated recipe and with new photos March 2017. A couple of years ago I realized that this is a traditional French recipe, and is the first one that is usually taught to children in France, so easy.
