Yogurt Cake

I saw this cake on The Goddess's Kitchen blog a while ago, and really wanted to try it. I thought it would work well in a bundt tin.

In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder and bicarb. In another bowl, gently combine yogurt, eggs, sugar, vanilla, oil and rum.

Add flour mixture to yogurt mixture and blend together gently.

Pour batter into an oiled bundt tin (or round 25 cm cake pan greased and bottom lined).

Bake at 180 C for 30 - 35 mins until top is golden brown. Stand for 10 mins and transfer to cooling rack.

The cooked cake in the pan. Lovely and tangy - great with a cup of tea or some ice cream. It actually tastes a lot like cheesecake!

The finished cake, turned out onto the rack.

I often think the cake looks better top-side up when it's been cooked in a bundt tin, as below, although this one looks pretty cracked.

2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarb
2 eggs
250 ml (1 cup) whole milk plain unsweetened yogurt (I used Greek)
200 g (1 cup) sugar
80 ml (1/3 cup) vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tablespoon light rum (if you have any - I didn't add this)

I've only tried one yoghurt cake before, and it was lovely, don't know why I've never given it another go. You've put a note on this one under 'lunchbox' - your children are VERY lucky if this is what they'll find in their lunchboxes:P

I love yogurt cakes, they're so moist and tender. Bundt tins are so pretty too.

Coby - I tagged this as 'lunchbox' because it's a non-sticky cake which would work well in a lunchbox. None of it remained to be put into lunchboxes though because it was demolished so quickly!

I'm sending this link to a friend whom I know will love this (given that I don't have much of a sweet tooth).
