Hi pastry lovers !
We will stick to the French news today… We are facing butter shortage !! Imagine that !! France without butter !! Merde alors ! (Pardon my French !) We are getting very close to the end of our pastry world !! You get it now, you feel the atmosphere … It’s the end of an area !!! So, I won’t explain how to make butter with fresh cream, because if you think about it a second, if we don’t have butter anymore, soon, we won’t have cream either !! What ???!!! So it will be a yoghurt poundcake today, with oil!!
Aww … Thank God ! We are saved ! Even if we don’t have butter anymore, we’ll still have cakes, which is a very good news!!
I bake this poundcake several ways, with several molds, depending on how I feel, and the unbelievable pressure my kids put on me… They are terrible…
In a poundcake mold, a charlotte mold, in a regular cake mold or in individual portions, like cupcakes or muffins… Let’s be creative!
As far as ingredients are concerned, there are a few options too: chocolate chips (the house best-sellers !!), apples (apple is a great match with the poundcake taste and also will stay firm enough during baking), apricots, flaked almonds on top, etc …
You do understand that this poundcake is great and super easy to bake!!
What else? The recipe maybe… Chef !
- 125 g plain yoghurt
- 115 g sunflower oil
- 270 g sugar
- 280 g flour
- 10 g baking powder
- 3 eggs
Preheat your oven at 160 degrees.
If you have a food processor (KitchenAid, Thermomix, ...), put all the ingredients in the bowl and mix at medium speed for 30 secondes.
If you don't have a food processor, mix the yoghurt with the oil and sugar.
Add the flour and baking powder.
Add the eggs, ons by one.
Add the complementary ingredients (chocolate chips, apple in pieces, etc) and mix gently.
Pour the batter into a buttered mold.
Bake for 1 hour.
At the end, check if your cake is baked enough with a knife.
Unmold and let cool down on a grid.
This cake is delicious for teatime or breakfast, especially if you have kids who have difficulty eating in the morning.
