Lemon Yoghurt Cake



Made this 'Lemon Yoghurt Cake' with the Anolon Bundt tin, a Mother's Day gift from my three musketeers!  I find this bakeware very practical because of the silicone enhanced slip-free handles.....giving it a better grip especially when removing it out from the hot oven!

I applied a lemon glaze on the hot cake which added more zing to the taste.  Butterless and tangy, excellent for weight watchers!  Grab a piece!

Ingredients
  • 280 gm plain flour
  • 180 gm caster sugar
  • 120 ml vegetable oil
  • 250 ml lowfat yoghurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 flat tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • rind of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Lemon Glaze
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp caster sugar
Stir and mix till sugar has dissolved, set aside.

Method
  1. Sift the plain flour with the baking powder and salt, set aside.
  2. Cream the eggs and sugar till light, fluffy and thick.
  3. Add in the lemon rind, juice and vanilla.
  4. Mix in the yoghurt and oil, blend well.
  5. Fold in the sifted flour until just combined.
  6. Pour batter into a 24 cm bundt tin and bake in preheated oven @ 180 deg C for about 45 mins.  Test with skewer till it comes out clean.
  7. Let cake cool in the tin for about 5 mins. before removing it onto a wire rack.
  8. Use a skewer to prick holes all over the cake.
  9. Brush lemon glaze all over hot cake, repeat till all the glaze is used up.
  10. Let cake cool and serve.

  9. Hi Auntie!
    I was so surprised to see this post as I myself just baked a lemon yogurt cake over the weekend using Barefoot Contessa's (food network) recipe. I was a little disappointed with the consistency of the cake where its half spongy and half cake-ey.
    The ingredients are pretty much the same as yours, only difference is that you cream your eggs and sugar first till fluffy.
    What was the consistency of your cake? Does creaming make a big difference?
    I am so tempted to try your recipe, but still have long way more to go with the one I already baked.

    I don't know about your recipe so I'm not able to comment. Does your recipe use butter? From my experience, whenever a recipe calls for oil and not butter, it's best to cream the sugar and egg first, then you add in the oil later. If you cream sugar, eggs and oil together, it won't be creamy because the oil is heavy and sinks. In fact, this is my 2nd attempt, the first time I creamed all the 3 together and the cake was not so moist, a bit like kuih. So I changed the method and I'm happy with it. So from now on whenever a recipe has oil and no butter or margarine, I cream the eggs and sugar first.

    Thanks, penny!

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
