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!

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
