Yoghurt Cake - Simple, easy and delicious.

This delicious cake is so easy to make and so versatile, that you should definitely give it a go.
Its a cake made with yoghurt and you can make it as it is, or add whatever you want to it, from Chia seeds to chocolate choc chips. Play around with the type of oil you use it (For just plain recipe, go for Olive oil, it gives it such a special delicate flavour). Also, you can play around with the type of yoghurt you will use. From plain to flavoured. 

The cake itself doesn't have so much sugar (comparing to a regular cake recipe), so if you don't add too much chocolate too it, is even a breakfast cake.

So go for it, and let me know which variation you made and how was it.

This recipe is for a medium to large cake. You can adjust for a smaller one, but don't forget to adjust cooking time as well. 
You will need:
  • 1 1/2 cups yoghurt
  • 2/3 cup oil (vegetable for a flavoured cake, Olive oil if you will make it as it is)
  • 1 to 1 1/4 cup sugar (again, depending on your flavours, and yoghurt flavour)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • a good pinch of salt
  • Optional:
Cinamon, nutmeg, Rum, chia seeds, berries, chocolate powder, chocolate chips, oats, nuts, you name it!!!!

Method:
pre-Heat the oven to 180Celsious. 
Grease a springform pan lightly with baking spray or oil, and line the bottom with baking paper or flour

Whisk together the yogurt, olive oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. 
Add the flour, baking powder, soda and salt (and your extras) right into the liquids and stir just until no lumps remain.

Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, covering with foil at the end if the top is browning. 
When a tester comes out clean, transfer the cake to a cooling rack and let it cool for 10 minutes before removing it from the pan.

Serve the cake warm or at room temperature. When well-wrapped, this keeps very well for several days.
