I have to admit that I have not had idea about Yogurt cake before until one of my friends told me about this cake!
I was curious to know it so I immediately went to my book shelf to find more about it and I found many recipes. I went straight to the kitchen to try some of them. After some trials I finally found the one I love the most.
Till now I have baked this many times as it's not only delicious but it's very simple to make.
The recipe from the book “Baking from my home to yours” by Dorie Greenspan.
180 g. all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
180 g. sugar
Grated zest of 1 lemon
125 ml. plain yogurt
3 large eggs
¼ tsp vanilla extract
125 ml. flavorless oil
1. Preheat the oven to 175-180° C.
2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
3. Put the sugar and zest in a bowl using your fingertips to rub the zest into the sugar until the sugar is moist and aromatic.
4. Add the yogurt, eggs and vanilla and whisk until the mixture is well blended.
5. Add dry ingredients using a spatula and fold in the oil.
6. Scrape the batter into the pan and smooth the top.
7. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until the cake begins to come away from the sides of the pan. (a thin knife inserted into the center will come out clean)
8. Let it cool in the pan for 5 minutes before taking it off.
I like having dessert with custard especially with some cake. I love the taste and the texture of its, but I dislike having only custard as dessert!!
Last week, I talked to my friend telling her that I really want to eat Crème Brulee but I don’t like the traditional one. I have thought making it with Earl grey or berries tea just having some aroma.
The day after, she told me that she just made Chocolate crème brulee which made my heart beat and I almost scream out loud. She said that because of me, she went to check out her baking book and found out this recipe.
She said that it's so delicious and hand me immediately the recipe.
My husband and I are chocolate lovers so, I did not hesitate to make it ASAP, but after looking in my fridge, I gotto wait the next day because I ran out some ingredients... poor me!!!
I made half recipe and modified it as I did not have enough ingredients.
Chocolate custard cream
338 ml. fresh cream
163 ml. whole milk
90 g. sugar
185 g. dark chocolate chopped
some brown sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 150° C
2. Put the cream, milk and sugar in a large saucepan and bring to boil.
3. Remove from the heat and add the chopped chocolate and allow to stand for 2 minutes.
4. Then stir until smooth.
5. Beat the yolk with an electric mixer until its light colour.
6. Add the chocolate mixture and beat until combined.
7. Strain the custard into the prepared dish. ( I made 2 medium dish and 2 ramekins)
8. Put the dish and ramekins in a tin and add enough hot water to the tin.
9. Bake for 35 minutes (depend on the side of the dish and the oven temperature) or until the custard is set. The custard should be slightly wobbly in the center.
10. Remove the dish from the tin allow to cool.
11. Sprinkle the surface with the brown sugar use a small blow torch to caramelize the sugar.
It's absolutely delicious; you can have sweet and smooth texture with scent of toffee at the same time.
Thank you my friend, Pook from daily delicious blog.
