I was not kidding when i say that this gotta be the most versatile recipe ever and it produces healthy and very tasty cakes too!
This time round, because we were craving for something chocolate, i tweaked the original recipe quite a bit and out came Yogurt Chocolate Cake, best with Chocolate Ganache. *wink*
Of course, you can eat it just like that as well (still decadent!) … without the ganache. For myself, i’d prefer to go all the way… I mean, since i’m already indulging, i might as well eat it the shiok-est way as possible. :P
** Just received a text from the baby sister.
Mood to finishing up this entry is now gone. The sister just told me that she dreamt (last night) that my 3 boys died in a tragic accident and she cried so bad until she woke up. OMG.
And guess what? I’m supposed to drive up to KL in a bit! (waiting for another fruit cake to bake in the oven)
This is not good.
I really don’t like the sound of it at all and this isn’t the first time. Just before another sister left for New Zealand few months ago, she had a similar dream as well and woke up crying too. Received her text the very next day, followed by a phone call to speak to the boys.
Should i be superstitious and stay home today?
Anyway, here’s the recipe.
Yogurt Chocolate Cake
125g unsalted butter, softened
1 cup caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup of thick plain yogurt + 1 tbsp more
2 cup self raising flour
1/2 cup dutch cocoa powder
1/2 baking soda
1. Beat butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Add eggs. Beat well.
2. Stir in sifted flour, cocoa powder and baking soda and alternate it yogurt into the butter and egg mixture. Mix well but do not over mix.
