After cleaning out the fridge yesterday I realised I had a some natural Greek yoghurt that I wouldn’t eat before it expired so this morning I decided to whip up a cake to take on a little picnic and it led me to making a Chocolate Yoghurt cake – anything with chocolate in it will be devoured my the littlies so it was a winner.
This recipe is an easy one bowl cake.
1 3/4 Cups Plain Flour
1/4 Cup Cocoa
1 1/2 Cups Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Bicarbonate Soda
1/2 Cup Light Olive Oil
1 Cup Natural Greek Yoghurt
100gm melted cooking chocolate
LETS PUT IT ALTOGETHER
1. Melt the chocolate in a microwave proof bowl in the microwave in 20 second intervals stirring after each time until melted.
2. Place all the listed ingredients into a large bowl and then add the slightly cooled chocolate.
3. Using a mixer beat for 3-5 minutes until smooth and glossy.
4. Pour into a greased cake tin and bake in a 180 degree oven for 40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Enjoy as it or serve with a dollop of fresh cream and berries.
Note the KitchenAid Hand Mixer in this photo – I am in love. I was sent it on loan to see what I think of it and at first I was like yeah yeah another hand mixer they all do the same thing.
Comparing this to my $40 Sunbeam hand mixer I have to say that it is lighter, the whisk beaters make the mixes glossy and light and done produce any mess when they are lifted. I so desperately want a KitchenAid Stand Mixer but the budget keeps say NO…..I will be putting this on my list of presents this year for sure…..It is also comes in baby pink…winning.
