We’ve been busy with holiday activities this week. I always find it slightly stressful trying to fill the days. In reality, the kids are quite happy to amuse themselves with their toys or books but it’s still nice to go out and see what’s happening around London. It’s hard to believe it’s the Summer holidays at the moment. It’s raining and cold!
I had planned on having a picnic in the park today but it’s too wet so we’re staying in. One of our favorite activities is baking. This morning we baked a delicious yogurt cake. The kids have been making this one for years. It’s a French recipe I came across that is really easy and fun for the kids as the ingredients are measured out in the little yogurt tubs.
Yoghurt Cake Recipe
2 six ounce containers of yogurt. We used flavoured yogurt today and it was delicious.
2 containers sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Just under 1 container of vegetable oil
4 containers of flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 180 degrees
Grease a 9 inch cake tin or loaf pan
Gently combine yogurt, eggs, sugar, vanilla and oil. In a separate bowl mix together flour and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix gently until combined . It’s important not to over mix. You can add 2 containers of fresh or frozen berries, chocolate chips or any flavoring you’d like. Bake for 35 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. It should be almost crispy on the outside but springy inside. The cake is delicious with a dollop of créme fraîche.
You can also add 2 containers of berries (fresh or frozen), chocolate chips or any other flavoring. Bake for 35 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
