When I got a cup of Greek yogurt from a friend, all I thought is making a delicious cake out of it. I found this recipe among some which looked easy and nice. It’s said this is a healthy cake but again, I am not that kind of person who puts too much concern on a cake being healthy or not, as long as I consume just enough, I think cakes or any food are healthy. Well ?
Let’s see the Ingredients :
2 cup of all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup light olive oil
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 cup caster sugar
3 medium eggs
2 tablespoon of lemon juice and zest of one lemon
How to create the beautiful spongy and fluffy cake ;
Mix all the dry ingredients ( flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt ) in a bowl, put aside.
Whisk the olive oil and sugar till sugar melt and add the egg, one at a time. Whisk till well combine.
Then add yogurt and lemon juice and lemon zest into the egg batter.
Add the flour mixture into the egg batter , whisk just for a few seconds to combine all the ingredients.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. I used 16cm cake tin. Bake for about 45 minutes or after you get a clean inserted toothpick out of the cake.
Dust with powdered sugar . Have a slice with a hot cocoa or coffee. You would ask for more, trust me.
