It's 80 milliliters vegetable oil. (As she notes in the headnote, measuring with yogurt tubs is just a way to avoid pulling out measuring cups, but you can certainly use the standard measurement too!)

Thank you, I can't find 4 oz yogurt cups, and didn't understand the scant measure. I'm looking forward to making the cake.

80 ml just happens to be almost precisely 1/3 cup. Does that make it easier? ;o)

Thanks for letting us know what you think about this cake. FYI, I just type "80 ml in cups" in my browser in Chrome and the answer comes up on the search results page - I don't even need to click through or plug it into a conversion table. ;o)
