Waiting for Spring…



Easy-breezy coffee cake

Not every day is a special occasion, but sometimes you just want to eat something sweet, but not so heavy – without any icing on it. And in that case usually you have everything in your fridge, without any special shopping.

I have a very easy recipe for you to try.

All you need is:

-3 eggs

-3/4 cup of sugar

-1 cup of plain yogurt, or sour cream (or even just cream, whatever you have in the fridge)

-50gr (or less than ½ stick) of butter

-1 ½ cup of any flour (all purpose or cake flour)

-1/2 tsp of baking soda

-pinch of salt

-1/2 tsp of vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C), and grease your spring form (9 inch diameter). You can bake in any form you want, it doesn’t have to be a spring form.

Beat together butter and sugar on a low speed, add eggs, one at the time, add the dairy ingredient (yogurt, sour cream or cream), mix until the batter looks smooth (doesn’t have any lumps in it).

In a separate bowl mix together flour, soda and salt. Add flour to your batter in two parts mixing with a spoon until smooth. Here comes the fun part! To give a special flavour to your cake you can add lemon zest (plus little bit of juice), orange zest, chocolate chips, even raisins, any dried fruit and vanilla to the batter. It is totally your imagination or preference.

Bake for 20-25 min in the oven until it’s golden brown. You can check by inserting a toothpick in the cake if it’s cooked through. If toothpick comes out clear, it’s done.

Leave on a cooling rack for 10 min, after which you can remove your cake from the form.


Enjoy with tea, milk or coffee!
