Apple Walnut Yoghurt Cake



This is my maiden posting - an Apple Walnut Yoghurt Cake which is light and not too sweet, which will be marvelous for those who are watching their sugar level and just love eating! Not only does it go well with a cup of piping hot coffee or tea, it's healthy too. Do try it out. It is not only as easy as ABC but you will enjoy eating it so much that you may want to try this recipe again or share it with your relatives and friends.

For the Cake : Preheat oven to 350 deg.F/180deg.C. Lightly oil & flour an 8 inch sq. baking pan.
1. Sift the plain flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and set aside.
2. Ceram the egg, egg yolk and caster sugar on medium speed till light, creamy and thick.
3. Reduce speed on low and add in the oil and vanilla. Mix till just incorporated.
4. Add in the yoghurt and lemon juice and mix till just blended and no white streaks remain.
5. Lightly, fold in the grated apple.
6. Spread half batter onto the pan, smoothen, and sprinkle the Streusel on the batter evenly, then with a knife, dip halfway into the batter and give it a swirl. Cover the Streusel with the remaining batter.
7. Bake the cake in the preheated oven for about 50 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
Note :
This cake is not thick, only 3/4 inch in height, for greater height, double the recipe.
Another variation of this recipe is to substitute the yoghurt with sour cream but omit the lemon juice.

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
