The most simple and the most delicious!
If you’re not the best baker in the family, then this recipe is for you! I once was the worst at baking and following measurements and everything I baked came out horrible and dry! I have to give credit to my amazing boss Alex, who shared this extremely simple cake recipe with me. No measuring or weighing ingredients! which I am SO BAD at doing. I prefer to cook and create my own 😉 This cake recipe is the foundation for any cake flavouring you want; vanilla, chocolate, lemon, berries you name it. The list is endless!
Ingredients for Raspberry and White Chocolate Cake
- 1 pot of all natural/greek/ or vanilla flavoured yoghurt (any brand you like)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 few drops of vanilla extract (optional)
- 2-3 pots of sugar (I like to use brown sugar, but any type will do)
- 2 pots of vegetable oil (do not use olive oil! The taste is too strong)
- 3 pots of plain flour
- 1 sachet of baking powder ( about 12g, 3 tsp)
- One whole block (150g-200g) of quality white chocolate ( use your favourite chocolate!)
- 2 box of raspberries (berries are usually sold in little containers weighing from 90g-150g)
Methods Using the yoghurt pot as your measuring guide. Preheat oven to 180°C.
- In a large bowl, whisk the yoghurt, sugar and eggs together ( and vanilla extract if you have some).
- Add to the mixture, flour and baking powder. While mixing, drizzle oil into the mixture
- In a small pot, melt half a block of your favourite white chocolate.
- Gently add into the mixture your melted chocolate and raspberries.
- Transfer mixture into a round baking tin (line the tin with some baking paper).
- Using the rest of the chocolate, roughly chop up the block into small chunks and place them into the cake mixture.
- Bake for 25-30mins, depending on the size of your baking tin. The wider the tin, the less time it will take to cook etc. Insert a toothpick or a wooden skewer into the centre of the cake, if the stick comes out dry then your cake is done.
Top Tip: Substitute the chocolate and raspberry for your favourites. Use the juice and zest of a lemon or lime, other types of berries, chocolate or fruits such as banana, pears, kiwis etc. You can play around and create your own flavours. Just use 1-2 servings, depending on how light or strong you want the taste to be, of your chosen ingredient and use the pot as your measuring guide. Have fun creating your favourite cake!
