The best yoghurt and almond cake

The best yoghurt and almond cake

 

 

Hello my foodies,

You all know my love for yoghurt cake, a simple cake to make with only one unit of measure the yoghurt pot, an easy to adapt recipe. It's THE BEST for me.

 For a while, I wanted to make a cake with an almond yoghurt base because at home, we love almonds too much.

So yesterday I went for it, frankly I made one of my best cakes, it was so good, soft, light and not very sweet.

Everybody loved it at home, it was just incredible made with simple ingredients and a quick recipe to make, perfect for your kids, they will love it.

I made my own almond powder that I mixed with my robot, I left little pieces of almond that gives a touch of crunch when you taste this cake, it's just beautiful.

I placed apple slices on top of my cake which gives a whole new dimension to the cake and adds a fruity touch. Test it and you'll tell me more about it.

I'm so proud of this cake. 

Advantages:

  • Easy to make, we just need the yoghurt pot to measure our ingredients, no need for a scale.
  • Ultra soft cake, this soft side of the cake is due to the presence of yoghurt in the recipe but also almond powder, which unlike flour is more moist.
  • Very little sugar, very light in the mouth.
  • Perfect for the kids, they'll love it.
  • Suitable for all occasions, for snacks, breakfast....

Tricks:

  • Mix with a spatula (plastic spatula with a flat end). 
  • Stir in almond powder last.
  • Eggs are important in this recipe, it serves to have a cake that holds better and more compact.

Tips for having a soft cake with a yoghurt base:

  • Yoghurt, in yoghurt cake, you often hear plain yoghurt. For a super soft cake, choose instead fromage blanc, some Greek yoghurts and/or add a tablespoon of fresh cream. The higher fat content will make the cake wetter and therefore more airy.
  • Corn starch is known to lighten cakes and thus bring them softness. Your choice: you can make half flour, half starch or total starch if you want to obtain an gluten-free cake for example.
  • Baking soda is a little miracle product in the kitchen. And it's our secret for super soft cookiesso we use it for our cakes, too. Add a quarter teaspoon with half a bag of baking powder and you're done!
  • White chocolate, if olive oil makes your cake extra tender, try also the white chocolate melted. You will thus obtain a soft aspect which remains quite compact.
  • The gentle mixing avoids exciting the gluten by stirring like a little crazy. Put all the ingredients except the flour and mix in less than 6 to 8 seconds. Add the flour, baking powder and baking soda and stir very, very quickly. Of course you don't leave any lumps in your dough either...
  • Apple compote, if you have chosen to flavour your yoghurt cake with apples, go for compote! It will be much lighter to make your cake swell!

  • At the cooling stage, as soon as you take the cake out of the oven, cover it quickly with some aluminium foil. This will create a kind of oven and your cake will be more moist so it will be softer.
