Blueberry yoghurt coffee cake


Don't be misconstrued by the word 'coffee' in this 'Blueberry yoghurt coffee cake' as coffee is certainly not an ingredient required in the making of this cake.  Coffee cake is just a class of cakes to be served alongside coffee or tea for breakfast, during coffee/tea breaks or even afternoon tea.  Some may have a streusel or a light glaze drizzle as topping but more often than not  they are flavoured with spices, nuts or fruits.












This cake is moist, not heavy but rich in flavour and the blueberries do add a little bit of texture to the cake.  Coffee, any one?

  8. Ha ha, the first time I saw a recipe for coffee cake, i was confused when I looked at the ingredients and there was no coffee :) Your cake looks beautifully moist. I love the shape too, I can never get my cake to come out of the bundt pan cleanly.

    Oh yes, you can. Just lightly grease the pan then sprinkle some flour over it, shake off any excess flour. But then the specks of flour may create holes on the surface of the cake

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.

Angel Food Cake ~ 天使蛋糕

  Angel Food Cake is a meringue based sponge cake with no butter, no oil and no baking powder or any rising agent.  It's aerated texture comes from the beaten egg whites.  This cake is soft, cloud-like, pillowy with a slight tinge of orange and is great to serve as dessert with some whipped cream, berries and in my case I chose grapes.
