    Apologies if this has been posted before but i just HAD to share this with you.

    Joanne1970 on the loquax forums posted a recipe that we stumbed on (hope she doesn't mind us sharing) and we got around to trying it recently (and boy was we surprised).

    1 carton (approx 150g) yoghurt
    2 cartons caster sugar
    3 cartons self raising flour
    1 carton sunflower oil
    3 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla essence


    Beat all the ingredients together with an electric whisk until smooth (or use a fork or hand whisk). Line a loaf tin, pour in and bake for 1 1/2 hours at 160 oc, gas mark 3 for 1 1/2 hours. Adjust for fan assisted oven to 150 oc for about an hour.

    We used 125g Asda yoghurt and tried low fat cherry. We also didn't have caster sugar so used brown sugar (sieved and reduced to 1 1/2 yoghurt pots), 3/4 carton of sunflower oil and two eggs. We also omitted the vanilla essence and boy did it just come out perfect.

    Theres no mess to content with (1 baking tray, 1 bowl and a yoghurt pot you throw away at the end) and it was really easy.

    Hope somebody gets something out of it and thanks to Joanne1970 for a fantastic, original idea :)

    We can't wait to try other flavours now LOL :)

    I would like to try this recipe tonight, but I only have veg oil, plain flour and toffee flavour yohurt in. I do not want to go to the shops as I will end up spending!! Will veg oil work? How much baking pdr do I need to add to make plain flour into SR flour?:confused:

    Any help much appreciated.:T

    Cheers :beer:

    Yum, I'm about to put two toffee yoghurt cakes into the oven. I used to make this recipe a while ago after seeing the original post on Loquax. It is delicious.

  • Thought I'd bump this old thread as I was Googling for cake recipes to use up some leftover yoghurts and this was about the 4th result that came up!

    Used 2 tubs of vanilla Muller Lite yoghurt to make the cake recipe in the first post (adjusted the quantities a bit tho! ;)) - had to make it into buns as I still don't have a cake tin :o It made 16 decent sized ones and they are beautiful - I added sultanas as well, mmm!

    Still had some toffee yoghurts left after I'd made these and some overripe bananas that needed using up, so I used this recipe to make yet more buns, they're just finishing off in the oven now but they smell goooood!

    Feels great to make something so nice out of stuff that just a few months ago (before MSE) I probably would have thrown away!

    We're having curry tonight and I always have lots of leftover yoghurt that we dont really use for much else. I know it keeps forever but I'm trying to make the most of everything and buy very little at the moment (we go on holiday soon).
    Does anyone have a cake (or other sweet treat) recipe thats easy on the eggs? I only have one egg.

    You can use natural yoghurt mixed with milk in equal quantities to substitute for buttermilk. This features in quite a few cake recipes - sorry, can't access the one I like but it's called the Ultimate Chocolate Cake and is from a book called The Ultimate Recipe Book, if anyone can find it for you?

    You could always use it to make some soda bread. Just replace the buttermilk with yoghurt!
