Sometimes all you need is a slice of simple, delicate, warm yogurt cake!
Today I was craving a slice of cake and I just had to bake this! ;)
It reminds of home, of being a kid and baking with my mum, of having an afternoon snack (merenda) with a slice of homemade ciambellone.
It is perfect for breakfast, dipped in your morning caffelatte! It is also incredibly easy to make!
- 300g plain flour
- 1 tbsp potato starch
- 250g Greek or natural yoghurt
- 200g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup sunflower oil
- zest of 1 lemon
- pinch of salt
- icing sugar to decorate
Pre-heat the oven to 180 C°.
Beat the eggs with the sugar, then slowly add the sunflower oil. Add the yogurt, potato starch, lemon zest and a pinch of salt. Mix all ingredients with an electric whisk.
Gradually add the flour, vanilla extract and baking powder. Pour the mix into a greased cake tin. Bake for 35/40 minutes. Do not open the oven for at least 30 minutes.
Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool down on a wire rack for about 10 minutes. Dust the top with icing sugar.
Enjoy dipping a slice of cake in warm caffelatte or milk!
