    Hello

    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.

    TIA:A

    There's a thread here using one egg :D

    I'll add this thread to the yogurt cake one to give you ideas on recipes.

    haven't had yogurt cake in years, used to make it in the staff canteen of a large factory, where i used to work, think i'll make one this weekend
    the recipe that veusflytrap found from channel four sounds nice too, i have some ripe bananas that i threw in freezer, that need using up
    enjoy life, we only get one chance at it:)

    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

    Method

    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 :)


    lol not original , have made it like this for years

    btw if you use apricot yoghurt adds a bit of flavour

    I use the recipe above - rarely make any other cake! Toffee yoghurt is great, add cocoa for a chocolate ( and I've got away with 2 eggs rather than 3.)

    I was looking for something really simple to bake with no mess, cos I have 2 pro chefs in the house at weekend and if I let them bake I would be washing up till wednesday. It takes them 5 knives to make a butty! I let them do the Sunday dinner tho Im not daft - thats worth the washing up:rotfl:

    Ok I used a luxury fudge yoghurt, so I was a bit extravagant but it was so easy and now a definate favourite here. You can really taste the fudge.

    You use the yoghurt pot to weigh ingredients out.
