This yoghurt cake, made using the yoghurt pot as a measuring cup, is the easiest bake you can imagine. Use high quality ingredients: fresh free range eggs, organic full fat yoghurt and seasonal fruit. In winter, you can mix in grated organic orange peel to give an extra hint to your cake. Eaten for breakfast, this cake will turn your mornings into a glorious moment.
Whisk the eggs with the sugar until pale. Add the extra virgin olive oil and yoghurt and stir to mix
Sift in the flour, the baking powder and the grated peel of one orange and one lemon
Butter and dust with flour a 24 cm round cake tin, scrape the batter into the tin and bake for about 30 minutes until golden and dry inside. Use a toothpick to test if it is dry inside
Remove from the oven, let it cool down for a few minutes and remove from the cake tin. Let it cool down completely on a wire rack, then dust with sugar. It will keep fresh for several days if stored perfectly wrapped in a kitchen towel
