    Here's one to start you off (my adaptations are in brackets),but there are lots of others including soda bread

    1 pot (small) yoghurt any flavour you like (I used lemon)
    1 pot cooking oil (2/3rd pot corn oil)
    1 pot sugar.... (I used a lot less sugar)
    3 pots self raising flour.... (I used 2 pots flour)
    (I added some lemon zest )


    1.Preheat oven to 180c
    2. place above ingredients in the bowl and beat till mixed.
    3. Pour mix in loaf tin
    4. Put in oven for 30 mins (180c)
    5. Take out of oven after 30 mins and allow to cool
    while cake is still luke warm make a runny icing sugar mixture with the juice from the lemon/orange it give a really fresh tangy taste that is absorbed into the cake.....so scrummy
    For the drizzle:
    Juice of lemon 1 to 3 heaped tbsp icing sugar. Make drizzle quite thin, so it soaks in
    • Preheat oven 190c for muffin size
    • 15-20 for smaller size.
    Mix syrup ingredients together, !!!!! hot cake with a skewer or fork and pour the syrup over. Leave in tin to cool completely

    Hi Sandy,
    thanks for this.
    Baked it today. TBH I thought you'd forgotten the eggs so I added one !!(and used 3 cartons of flour)
    It did take an hour to cook however.
    Maybe that's because of the extra flour and an egg. :confused:
    Anyway, the result is a very light loaf cake, which is going down well!:p
    :wave:

    Don't suppose any of you kind ladies has a recipe for a cake or muffins that will use up a small carton of plain yoghurt?

    I can't eat it "raw" so I have to put it into a dish/cake that is cooked.

    Are you in the Mr Bad Example fan club :confused: You asked for a meatloaf recipe earlier in the week, and from the same series is this thread Mmmmm, cake (for bloke). The recipe he uses is post 4, and there are pics later. Hope you still have Tena Lady handy :T :j

    Mine's now in the oven - I used a spare Mullerlight peach smooth yougurt - will report back on the results later.

    I didn't even get the electric whisk out - just used a balloon whisk - 5 minutes tops!

  • I blame you lot.
    I just thought Iwill go and make a yoghurt cake, I think I have a yoghurt lurking in the fridge. Well in trying to find it (unsuccessful, I think DD ate it) I knocked over a tub of cream(open) which fell in the salad drawer. I have now washed the spring onions, lettuce and cauliflower, and am going to make scones instead. I still have a bit of the dammed cream to put on them.
    I made the scones and they look very nice

    My yoghurt cake was a bit sweet for our taste - could be because it was a diet youghurt with sweetener in it? I'm going to have another try this afternoon though, when the oven is on to cook dinner, I've bought a plain youghurt just to try it and will add some cocoa this time too.
