My Sister- in Law and I had organized to meet on Sunday last week. A little while ago she gave me some lemons to make the lemon curd I needed for the Retirement cake I made in July. So I thought to say Thank you I would bring her some freshly lemon curd with the last lemons I had but I didn't want to bring the lemon curd on its own so I made a cake. I wanted something quick and easy to make with the ingredients I already had at home. So I made this wonderful yoghurt cake that inspired from a recipe found on a French website.
Here is the original recipe:
- 1 pot of yogurt (I use Yoplait Trim, then use this pot as a measuring cup for the rest of the ingredients,
- 2 pots of sugar (I actually only used one and I have found that to be enough)
- 1/2 pot of oil
- 3 eggs
- 2 pots of flour
Preheat the oven to 200 degree C.
Mix all the ingredients and pour in a greased tin.
Bake for about 30 minutes.
when I made this one, I actually burnt it. Doesn't happen too often luckily and I didn't want to bring a burnt cake to my Brother and Sister- in Law so I made another one... except I ran out of flour... BUT I had some semolina flour and I thought I could put the same quantity of semolina that I had flour missing. I started with /2 cup of flour (to 1 and a half cup of self- rising flour) and it was just great. The cake was moist and still very light.
Because the cake was so successful (even the burnt one at home), I decided to make it into muffins. I added some lemon and orange zest for some more flavor and here they are:
My 13 month old son had some when he woke up and I had to give him a second piece. I hope you enjoy making and eating this as much as we do :)
