Yoghurt Cake with Blueberries
This weekend, I commenced my Christmas baking and preparations in earnest, so I didn't have time for complex side ventures. However, as a simple item that I could take to work to share, I made Clotilde's (of Chocolate & Zucchini) Yoghurt Cake, and threw in a few blueberries for additional flavour.
Clotilde tells us that this cake is the first one that French children learn to make because it is so simple - what's not to like about that? She also accurately describes this cake as fluffy and not too sweet.
I enjoyed my slice of yoghurt cake with a scoop of vanilla icecream:
I own Clotilde's first book, Chocolate & Zucchini, which contains this recipe. It is a beautiful book, and well worth the purchase price. There are plenty of recipes, just like this one, with lovely photographs for each recipe, and a nifty set of conversion tables in the back (which I use all the time for oven temperatures when making American recipes).
Hope you had a great weekend!
