Yogurt cake from school

Aelig came back from school and took out a sheet of paper.
It has yogurt recipe on it and she requested me to make it together.
The school has been teaching them baking, making crêpes and pies with some simple recipes, but I have never really tried any at home.

Since she asked for it, I just let her play with it, and of course her sister wanted to join. The little one was more into eating the dough then making it.

The result : it was eatable considering how simple it was the making process. Plus, I had never made Yogurt cake before, hubby told me that I should use a square baking dish instead of a rectangular one.

Here is the recipe, translated from French:

Yogurt Cake
Quantity : 8 persons
Preparation : 15 minutes
Baking time : 30 minutes

4 eggs
1 natural Yogurt
2 cups of sugar (I presume it means using the Yogurt container as measurement cup)
3 cups of flour
1 cup of oil
1 tablespoon of yeast

Pre-heat the oven to 200°C
Mix in the order of the ingredients one after another
Pour into a baking dish
Bake for 20 to 30 minutes
The cake is to be eaten when it turns golden and not too cook, it will remain soft.

    Oh, it's a French classic, much like the quatre-quarts :-) Not a delicacy, but tasty. Reminds me... of school!

  2. Ha! thought you knew the recipe since you first arrived in France. That's the cake I learned to make since living here. But I've changed ratio on sugar and only use 3 eggs. I often add 3 pureed bananas and only use 1 cup of sugar.

  3. Hye Bee Ean. Its good to found you here. Im Malaysian too living in Paris.
