Another easy to make, no icing cake. I had to make a quick cake for unexpected guests, so found a lime in the fridge and remembered this recipe. There
is no creaming of butter and sugar - just mix dry ingredients with wet, bake and
sprinkle with sugar. Quick and easy. It uses oil and yoghurt, so must be healthy!
250g whole full fat Greek yoghurt
80ml olive oil
200g caster sugar
of one lime
4 tbspn lime juice
210g plain flour
1/2 tspn baking powder
1/2 tspn salt
tbspn lime zest
oven to 180C/gas4 and grease a 22cm baking tin.
Mix yoghurt, oil, lime juice, zest and eggs in a bowl till well combined. In another bowl, mix the sugar, flour, baking powder and salt together.
the wet ingredients into the dry and mix with a
wooden spoon till just combined [don't over mix]
into the tin and bake for 45-50 minutes,till the cake is
lightly browned on top
Sprinkle top with a mixture of lime zest and caster sugar.
The crumb is nice and moist from the oil and yoghurt, and the lime adds zing to the cake. A lovely summery treat. If you wanted you could ice it using lime juice and icing sugar, but I like it simple, with just the zest and sugar mixture.
