I haven't baked anything lately. Summer was a great excuse to turn off my oven. Most often, there is no room for desserts after any meal in my home - except for ice cream especially my son.
To kick starts the Fall season. I baked this classic French dessert; Gâteau au yaourt (yogurt cake). It is a basic simple cake to bake with your kids. You cannot go wrong in any way. You don’t have to pull a weigh scale, no need of stand mixer; every ingredient is measured with an empty Yogurt container (approx. 120 ml) or ½ cup (US=125 ml) can be used as an empty yogurt container. A healthy alternative to pound cake if you want to maintain your curves.
Recipe: Yogurt Cake-Gâteau au yaourt
3 larges Eggs
1 Plain yogurt container (4.oz- 120 ml) (Empty the container and keep it as a measuring cup)
2 container of Sugar (use the empty yogurt container)
3 container of Flour (same yogurt container)
1/2 container of Vegetable oil
1 tsp Vanilla essence
1+1/2 tsp of Baking powder
Grease a round cake pan with oil and dust with flour.
Preheat the oven at 350° F.
Mix the flour, salt and baking soda together.
Beat the egg and sugar for 2 minutes- quiet light and creamy
Add the yogurt,vanilla essence and oil and mix well until well blended.
Add the flour mixture into the yogurt mixture and blend together.
DO NOT OVER MIX.
Pour into the greased pan and Bake for 30 min, or more.
Tips: If over mixed and over baked the cake tend to go dry.
