Orange-Yogurt Cake

Orange-Yogurt Cake

I love fruit! I am one of those people who regularly consumes their daily 5 portion of fresh fruit and vegetable. I never miss out on a green apple or a fresh orange or some papaya as a snack in-between meals or as a dessert-replacement after lunch or dinner.

I also like to incorporate fruit into my cooking, making sweet/sour sauces to dress meat, or make delicious muffins or cake.

Just the other day I made this orange and yogurt cake which turn out awesome! The recipe is an adaptation of Marta Stewart's. Hope you like it!

Ingredients:

  • Unsalted butter, softened, for pan
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest, plus 2 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting

In a bowl of your electric mixer combine the sifted flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, the zest of the orange
