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!

Pandan Coconut Milk Bread ~ 香兰椰奶面包

  I made  this bread using the Wool Roll bread recipe and just substituted milk with coconut milk, added a bit of pandan paste and instead of melted butter, I used cooking oil.  Feel free to use coconut oil if you have it at hand.  This bread is soft and light and it stayed fresh till after the third day in a container, at room temperature.  You can eat it on its own accompanied with a cup of hot kopi O or slathered with butter and in my case, peanut butter.

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too! Mixed Fruit Bread  ~    杂果面包 Ingredients 290 gm high protein flour 10 gm wholemeal flour 30 gm sugar 3.1/2 tsp milk powder 18 gm butter (cubed) 1 tsp seasalt 100 gm dried mixed fruits (I used cranberries, sultanas and golden raisin) 1 whole egg beaten wtih 1/2 tsp water, for egg wash 1/8 to 1/4 tsp cinnamon  (optional) 2 tsp dry yeast             ) 170 ml warm water     )  Yeast mixture 1 Tbsp sugar               ) Method Add yeast and sugar to warm water, stir and let it set for about 5 to 8 mins. till foamy.
