Yoghurt Cake – Cape Malay Cooking & Other Delights – Salwaa Smith
Use any flavour yoghurt to make this easy, quick and delicious cake for afternoon tea. Dust with icing sugar and enjoy with a warm or cold beverage.
3 large eggs
½ cup cooking oil
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 ½ cup self-raising flour
½ cup yoghurt (any flavour)
Icing sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease a Bundt tin or a 22cm round baking tin. Using a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil and sugar until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is light and creamy. Add the vanilla essence and mix in the flour. Fold in the yoghurt and pour the batter into the prepared tin. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Leave to cool 5 minutes in the tin before turning out on a wired rack to cool completely. Dust with icing sugar.
