Yogurt Cake

Its New Years!!!! : What better way to celebrate New Years than to bake a cake ?? :) After all the partying and dancing, you need a quick-bake recipe, so that you don't have to spend too much time in the kitchen. But yes, start your new years with a sweet and we wish you have a great, bright sweet new year ahead :))

Lets bake a cake with ingredients that you normally have in the kitchen!!! Egg, yogurt, oil, ghee...These are always there in the kitchen...
Baking a cake with yogurt surely seems new, but trust me, the aroma is so inviting and the cake turns out so soft and spongy that i am sure it will be finished in a jiffy...

Ingredients :

Maida /All purpose flour - 1 cup
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Yogurt - Full cream thick yogurt - 1/2 cup
Oil - ( preferred olive oil ) - 5 tbsp or u can use 2 tbsp butter
If you don't have both, add 3 tbsp ghee.
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Egg - 1
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Tutty fruity - a few ( you can even add dry fruits of your choice if u wish)
Nutmeg - 1/4 tsp

Recipe :

Sieve together twice Maida, baking soda and baking powder and keep aside.

Grease and dust a cake tin with butter and flour respectively.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Beat oil and sugar together. Add Egg and beat it more. Now add the yogurt.
Add vanilla essence and nutmeg powder and then add the flour mixture slowly. Mix it all well with spatula.

Once the batter is ready, pour into the cake tin and bake at 180 degrees for 50 minutes. If you see the top is turning dark brown, then cover it with a foil towards the end ( after 40 minutes - only if it is turning dark ) and bake again.

Once done, remove and cool in the tin for 10 minutes.

Now remove from the tin and let it cool completely.

You can even serve this with a scoop of ice cream :)

Happy Baking!!!
