Low Fat - Yogurt Cake

Over the last two months I'm enjoying my cooking time even more :) as I'm quite thrilled with the baking experiences I've had so far. This time I wanted to bake something which was quick and easy. So while going through my recipe collection I came across this one. It read low fat- yogurt cake, and that got me interested! I was a bit doubtful how it would turn out. It came out really well and the best part was that S and I didn’t feel guilty gorging on it.

Smitha of http://saffronapron.blogspot.com/ has been very generous to pass me the 'friends' award. It's my second time..yippeeeee! Thanks for the award Smitha :) I would like all my foodie blogger friends to take this award (from MY AWARDS section), as each one of you are special and I love you all for being extremely warm and supportive.

Here’s the recipe for the cake.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup yogurt (dahi)
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar (I used 1 cup)
  • 1 1/3 cups maida
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp vanilla essence
  • a pinch of nutmeg (opt)
Method:
STEP- 1
Sift the flour and baking powderBeat the eggs, oil, vanilla essence in a separate bowl, set it aside. Beat the sugar with yogurt in another bowl.

STEP -2
Add the egg mixture to the flour and beat well. Next pour the sugar and yogurt mixture into it and beat well till smooth and well blended. Pour the mixture into a greased cake tin. Bake for 35- 45 minutes (or till done) in a preheated oven at 180*C/350* F. Once the cake is done, cool it completely and cut into desired shape and serve with a drizzle of honey.
