Yogurt Cake ~ Recipe

yogurt_cakeI originally saw this recipe in one of Bendetta Parodi tv show, but I realized that I changed it during the years, to suit me better. This is one of those cake that all kids like. Very simple, but very soft and tasty, perfect for breakfast.  My husband love to cut the slice in half and put some jam in it. You can fill it also with some Nutella, but definitely it won’t be healthy anymore…^-^””

Another advantage: we don’t have to divided yolk from white albumen. It take 7 minutes to make the mix and no butter!! Buona colazione! ( have a nice breakfast!). You can use the same yogurt container as measurement cups. Always happy when I have less dishes to wash :D

Time:  7 + 35-40 min cooking

Ingredients:  for 26 cm round baking

  • 250 gr plain yogurt  ( 2 yogurt tub)
  • 300 gr white flour ( or 3 tub)
  • 3 eggs
  • 220 gr sugar (1 ½ tub)
  • ½ tub vegetable oil or olive oil ( around 4 tbs)
  • 1 bag vanilla flavored baking powder ( 13 gr ~ 1 full teaspoon)

1. In a bowl mix yogurt with 3 eggs and mix with a whisk.

2. Add sugar, stir till it is incorporated.

3.Add flour, oil, baking powder for dessert. You don’t need to sift it. Put the mix in a 26 cm round baking pan covered with baking sheet (so you won’t need extra butter and extra cleaning :).

Cook for 35-40 min for 180° static oven. Check with a toothpick if it is ready: stick it inside in the middle, if it is wet, it needs some extra minutes. Spread some powdered sugar on top of it, when it is fully cooled down.

meatballs

Time: 10 min prep + 15 cooking

Ingredients:

  • 500 gr beef and pork  minced meat mix

1. In a big bowl mix first with a fork and then with hands: meat, eggs, parsley, salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese, and bread flour. If you don’t have the bread flour just use some old bread you were supposed to throw away. To be honest, meatballs recipe was born to recycle meat leftovers and bread leftovers. If your bread it’s too hard, just put a little bit of milk on it and let it soak in. Before using sqeezes it well.

2. Make the balls with your hands and eat a pan in the mean while. You can put just tiny amount of olive oil on it or skip it; with a good non-stick pan it’s not necessery (I didn’t use it here).

3. Brown both sided of meatballs a little bit and put tomatoes sauce. Season with pepper and oregano. Cook for 15 minutes with your lids always on. Shouldn’t need to turn them anymore.

And they are super-yummy, buon appetito!!

Other options:

You can cook them without tomatoes sauce – just make them brown all sides and serve with some potatoes. This is how my daddy used to cook them when I was a kid.
