Yogurt Cake



I cannot even believe that this is my first time trying yogurt cake. As I ate my first slice then my second slice I was just so confused to why has anyone not tried this sinfully delicious cake? I cannot even begin to put into words how unbelievable this cake is!




The yogurt makes a delicate light and airy cake while the cardamom and orange blossom water takes you back to its Mediterranean roots. When poking the top with a fork before adding the sugar syrup, be extremely careful so that you do not tear your cake, it’s very fragile.This would be heavenly served with fresh fruit.

Ingredients:

 200 grams self rising flour

150 grams sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 eggs

250 grams yogurt

100 ml sunflower oil

1-1/2 teaspoons orange blossom water

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
