As you guys know I bake nearly every day. Here is a really simple quick cake recipe for whenever you have the munchies and desire something sweet. It’s perfect for Mother’s Day brunch and has the added benefit of making your home smell delicious.
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add the following dry ingredients:
2 cups of flour
1 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
Some of you are probably pulling your hair out wondering how much salt and cinnamon to add. Whenever a recipe calls for something less than ½ a teaspoon I tend to add whatever makes me happy. If you really need to measure, call it a pinch maybe two pinches. Today I am out of baking powder so I substituted it by adding ½ teaspoon of baking soda to the dry and 1 teaspoon of vinegar to the wet.
I like to mix the dry ingredients with a spoon and make a well. Then add to the well the wet ingredients:
1 cup of yogurt
⅓ cup of oil
Stir everything together and pour half the batter into a loaf pan. To make it interesting in a separate container mix:
¼ cup of brown sugar
¼ cup of sugar
Add half of the sugar mixture to the batter in the loaf pan. Pour the rest of the batter on top and on top of that sprinkle whatever you have left of the sugar mixture. You can get fancy and run a knife through the batter which makes the cake look very interesting when you cut into it.
Bake for 60 minutes, let cool for 10 mins, cut and serve.
It takes about 10 minutes to prep and while baking makes your house smell wonderful. Keep in mind that you can change up the recipe and add bananas to make a banana bread or pumpkin to make pumpkin bread and so forth I hope you enjoy the tip and have a great Mother’s Day with the women in your life.
