Clementine and Yoghurt Cake

I made another yoghurt cake. Inspired by a comment by Adam from weird weekends that he had made lemon yoghurt cakes before, I decided to try a clementine cake.

This was a very nice cake, that I failed to take any proper photos of. The only photo I have is me walking upstairs back to bed to eat what was my regular breakfast last week: green tea, two clementines and a slice of cake.

Yes, we eat breakfast in bed, surrounded by cats who are hoping for a few crumbs of cake or the little extra bits of butter we pop on the side of our plates especially for them ….

Normal is so over-rated.

Oh, I made this cake quite late in the day. I have therefore learnt something new: don’t put a cake that hasn’t cooled properly into a cake tin – the bottom goes a bit stodgy.

Clementine Yoghurt Cake: 4 eggs; 2 cups of sugar; 3 cups of flour; 1/2 cup of vegetable oil; 1 cup of yoghurt; 1 cup of clementine juice; 1 tbs of baking powder.

Beat sugar and eggs together in a mixer. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix. Put into a lined cake tin and bake for at least 45 minutes at 180C. This is what the recipe said, but  I had to leave the cake in longer than that – so let’s say cook it for an hour, but do check on it.

Actually I forgot about the cake and left it in for a lot longer so it was extra cooked and crunchy on top – that’ll be burnt then!

N.B. I got this recipe from the internet, but I can’t remember where – sorry – off to milk the goat, walk the dogs and then for a lovely lunch and the ballet (!) with wonderful friends.

  1. I’m in bed. Having coffee. Reading recipes, and blogs! I might need to try this cake recipe! But I’ll wait till the sun comes up! Then I’ll eat it in bed and salute to you.
    Look up morning glory muffins. Apples, carrots, orange juice, can add nuts or raisins. One of my faves.

    • Coffee in bed is good – coffee and cake in bed is eve better. I will look up the muffin recipe – can i put chocolate in there too? xx

  2. The clementine cake sounds delicious… (unfortunately my wife doesn’t let me in bed… something about leaving too many crumbs… and a one time… should be forgiven by know… chocolate stain )
