Goat's yoghurt, blueberry and orange cake
I've been intrigued by the yoghurt cake recipes I've come across on the net recently, so thought I'd give it a whirl, but customised ofcourse! It's the recipe where the ingredients are measured out using the yoghurt pot as a measure. This would be a useful recipe for when you're low/run out of butter. I also think it sounds a bit healthier than usual, especially with the fruit in it; at least it was until MrL decided to change his into a pudding and piled a big dollop of double cream on it!
1 pot of goat's milk yoghurt
2 pots of sugar
3 pots of self raising flour
1 pot of vegetable oil
1 good handful (about 4 oz or so) blueberries
zest and juice from 1 large orange
Mix everything very well until thoroughly combined. Pour into prepared tin and bake in a hot oven until well risen and golden brown. Turn out and cool on a wire rack.
I used a big 350g pot of yoghurt and ended up with two huge loaf tins of it; I'm fairly sure it will all get eaten, though. Must use a sensible sized pot next time.......I had this one as it was very well marked down on the reduced shelf in the shop! Creative shopping makes for creative cakes:)
