Spongey Yogurt Cake

This cake idea popped up when I had excess Greek yogurt in my fridge and I’m so glad I gave it a try..

Yogurt cake is obviously made using yogurt but the difference between this and a regular pound cake would be the spongey pillow like texture and the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness can only be tasted in the yogurt cake…

This cake needs no frosting but today I decided to serve it with some home made passion curd…match made in heaven !!!

The recipe for passion curd is available in the blog site.Refer to link below :

Let’s Get Started

You Will Need

  • 3 Cups Plain Flour
  • 1&1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Cups Brown Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Orange Juice
  • 2 tsp Orange Rind
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 200g Butter
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • Frozen Berries(optional)

Step One : Beat butter and sugar together till nice and fluffy

Step Two : Add eggs one by one and beat for a minute with each egg.

Step Three : Mix Yogurt,juice,rind and vanilla in one bowl and then mix with the beaten butter,sugar and egg mixture.

Step Four : Sift the flour with baking powder,baking soda and salt

Carefully fold this dry mixture in and now it’s looking more like a firm cake batter.

Step Five : Transfer to an 8” by 4” loaf tin or an 8” diameter cake pan
Line and grease the pan ahead

Step Six : Bake in a preheated oven at 180’ for at least 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean and dry. Do not panic if it takes longer in the oven…can happen sometimes

Let this cool down completely before cutting through

Sprinkle some powdered sugar and you got yourself a treat !!

Best served warm with some hot tea or coffee
