It appears we have Summer in full swing now and even had our first proper heat wave! You have no idea how happy it makes me and I don’t even mind being too hot, bring it on! 🙂
Add some wonderfully tasty Summery food and drink to the equation and I’m in heaven and as weekend is almost here I thought that a bit of cake wouldn’t go amiss! Won’t you agree? I thought something light and fruity would be appropriate. As it’s June and Strawberries are at their best I decided upon this Easy Strawberry Yogurt Cake.
This cake is perfect for this time of year and would be a wonderful accompaniment to afternoon tea, as a part of the picnic fare or a light dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! I use homemade vanilla caster sugar in this recipe. It sounds pretty fancy I know but it’s just caster sugar with used up pods of vanilla which I pop in a jar and top up with more sugar as I go along. Feel free to use regular caster sugar and add 1 tsp of vanilla extract instead.
There are only two very important things you need to remember before embarking on making this cake. These will ensure that you get a fluffy and light cake instead of dense and heavy disaster.
- All the ingredients (including yogurt) MUST be at room temperature.
- DO NOT overmix the batter.
That’s really all there is to it! Get baking and enjoy! 🙂
