Prepare for a barrage.

After a long week without my trusty Macbook Pro, it is back.  Oh, how I’ve missed it.

Now, let’s get down to business.  Here are the recipes from my last post that I said I would share:

Multigrain Molasses Bread – I got this recipe from the Eating Well website.  I like this site because it has a lot of different recipes for a lot of different tastes.  It’s also a health-conscious site, which I love.

This bread was very hearty and had a wonderful bran flavour.  It toasted very well and was amazing for tomatoe sandwiches!

Yogurt Breakfast Popsicles – This recipe if from the Kitchn.  I love the simplicity and diverse assortment of goodies on this site.

Mason Jar Cheesecakes – I thought I mentioned this on my last post but I guess I didn’t.  This is from the Just a Pinch website.  It’s a great member-based cache of recipes!

Strawberry Peach Jam – I almost forgot about this one I made from the Food.com website.  I had a lot of frozen fruit in my freezer that never gets used so I though, why not make some jam?

I hope you’ve enjoyed my barrage of yumminess!

 

 

 

 

 

I love cake.

I had a craving for cake today.  So, I made a yogurt cake.  It’s such an easy cake to make if you have lots of yogurt to use up.  Here’s what I used:

  • 1 cup (250 grams) any flavoured yogurt (I used the homemade yogurt that I made in the Instant Pot)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (I used cake & pastry flour)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

First, preheat the oven to 350F and grease an 8-inch cake pan (I used a springform pan).  In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer on medium speed, lightly beat eggs (approximately 30 seconds) add oil, sugar and yogurt, beat for 1 minute until smooth.

Add flour and baking powder and beat until well combined approximately another minute.

Pour into greased cake pan and bake 35-40 minutes or until tested done (when toothpick or knife inserted in cake comes out clean).

 

You can sprinkle with powdered sugar once cool, if you like.

Do you love cake?  What sort of cake do you like the most?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Happy baking!
