Yogurt Cake?

It sounds so much nicer in French - Gâteau au Yaourt - don't you think?

Sadly, I have no photo to share...mostly because the camera has gone walking with my husband today...and by the time he comes home with the camera, I'm sure all the little cakes will be eaten!

Very tasty and easy to prepare, provided you have whole milk yogurt on hand - I happened to have Creamline Yogurt from Trader Joe's (purchased for a curry recipe I was supposed to try last week...needless to say, the "was" is a slight indication of how last week's cooking went...that and the fact that I'm baking cakes should indicate my present mood ;) )

In any case, the recipe hails from Chocolate and Zucchini, and Clotilde has a lovely photo posted there. Instead of pouring the cake into the recommended circular cake pan, I divided the batter evenly amongst 12 greased and floured muffin tins for little cupcakes. I had one for breakfast, and delighted in the crisp top crust, and the fluffy and moist interior with just a little zing on the tongue from the yogurt. I plan to pair it later this evening with some chocolate ganache for frosting...and if there is any restraint in the house, I should have cupcakes to bring to work as a snack during the week!

It sounds delicious, and I think I'd like to try it. *G* By the way--I like your blog!
