I’m going to visit a friend on Friday and I said I would bring dessert. Turns out coffee cake is her very favourite. Now I’ve never made coffee cake before and in fact I’m really only starting to bake.
When my granny first started to show me stuff in the kitchen, she said to me that one of the most basic cakes is the yoghurt cake. So today, I’m bringing it back to basics and I made a coffee and yoghurt cake. This was a trial run for Friday and I’ll be a bit more generous with the spices, but man does it taste good already!
1 pot of natural yogurt, 2 pots of sugar (I used brown sugar), 2 pots of self raising flour, 1/2 pot of oil (I used olive oil), 3 eggs, 3 teaspoons of instant coffee, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Preheat the oven to 180 C. In a bowl, pour the yogurt. Rinse the pot (125 g) and use it as a measure for the rest of the ingredients. Add you sugar, flour and oil, crack your eggs. In the pot, put your 3 teaspoons of instant coffee and mix it with a few drops of water (unless it’s already fine powder), pour the mixture in and add your spices.
Butter the tray and shake some flour on the bottom. Pour the mixture in and place in the oven for 30 mn.
It’ll come out looking something like this:
