Children’s Yoghurt Cake


  • 125 g yoghurt

  • 1 cup Sugar

  • 2 Eggs

  • Grated zest of 1 lemon

  • 1.5 cup Flour or powdered almonds, or semolina, or mix

  • 1-1.5 teaspoons Baking powder

  • 95 g neutral-tasting oil or melted butter


  • 1.

    Heat the oven to 350ºF/180ºC.

  • 2.

    Beat the yoghurt and the sugar together in a bowl.

  • 3.

    Beat in the eggs and lemon zest. Sift the flour with the baking powder and beat in.

  • 4.

    Finally, add the melted butter (or oil, although it doesn't taste quite as nice) and beat the whole mixture well.

  • 5.

    Pour into non-stick muffin tins or a greased and floured loaf pan.

  • 6.

    Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 25 minutes.

  • To make syrup-soaked cakes:

  • 1.

    Heat orange or lemon juice with sugar, to taste, and cook until the sugar has dissolved, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • 2.

    Prick the tops of the cakes with a fork, and spoon the syrup over so it sinks into the cakes.


Yield: About 12 muffin-sized cakes, or 1 loaf
