Recipe of the Week-Raspberry Yogurt Cake

I'm trying out a new recipe each week of the summer......and this one was made for our bbq today.
We're big yogurt fans here......we eat gallons of the stuff......so a yogurt cake was very appealing.......even more so as there's no weighing......you use the empty carton to measure all the ingredients!


Raspberry Yogurt Cake
cake
200g pot raspberry and cranberry Mueller Light yogurt [you could use any flavour]
3 pots SR flour
1 pot sunflower oil
3 eggs
2 pots caster sugar
topping
250g tub mascarpone
200g tub light fromage frais
1 tbsp caster sugar
raspberry jam
150g punnet raspberries

oven 180c/gas 4         grease and line 2 8inch/20cms cake tins

Tip yogurt into bowl and then use the pot to add all the other cake ingredients.
Mix together.
Stir in half of the raspberries.
Divide between cake tins.
Bake for approx. 35 mins.

When cool make topping.
Mix mascarpone with fromage frais and sugar.
Spread jam on one cake and top with half the topping mix.
Sandwich cakes together.
Mix remainder of raspberries into remaining topping and spread on top of cake

Will keep for a few days in the fridge.
OH loved this cake.....and it's not too sweet.
When I make it again I'll probably mix the raspberries with all the topping mix and use to sandwich the cake together.....and just sprinkle a little icing sugar on the top.....easier to store in fridge......and much less messy to eat.
Though I'm thinking I may try it with strawberry yogurt and strawberries....or how about a blueberry one....or.......oh,the possibilities are endless.......and very yummy.

Sounds well tasty - might have to get hubby on to that one! When you say 3 pots of SR flour you mean 3 of the yogurt pots, right?

Looks pretty fab too

Happy Sunday

There's quite a bit of baking going on here as we fill the holidays - I'm sure anything with the novelty value of no weighing woukd go down a treat!

This sounds very tasty! I don't use mascarpone very often, so would be a great treat :)

alexa said...

Mmmm, looks scrummy. I might see if I can adapt this for gluten-free flours. :)

Yes, this sounds delicious, but would be a special occasion cake with all that marscapone! And, I like the idea of having icing sugar on the top and the filling as only the filling.

I remember using this recipe years ago,when it was going round Playgroup...we baked it in a loaf tin though and didn't have the filling or the topping...we did have it spread with butter and/or jam though (which I think is a very Scottish thing!. I may just have to give it a try again
