Last week-end, I felt like cooking and eating one of my grand-mother’s all time favorite : the yoghurt cake.
It is a very simple and healthy recipe. You can add fruits or chocolate chips to it.
I added Pears since we are in the fall season and because I love the balance of the cake and the tenderness of the pear.
The base of this recipe is 1 small plain yoghurt: Put the yoghurt into a bowl and then add the rest of the ingredients using the empty yoghurt cup as measuring cup.
1 small plain yoghurt
sugar: 2 yohurts
flour: 3 yoghurts
olive oil: 1/2 yoghurt
2 teaspoons of baking powder.
2 pealed and chopped pears (or more depending on your taste).
Mix everything together and put in the oven during 30-45 min at around 300-350 Fharenheit / 180 Celsius.
It all started when my friend Ellie talked about S’mores and she realized I had no idea what it was.
Next thing we knew, we were organizing a “date” to have me try out my first S’more.
I had bonfires when I was younger and we had grilled marshmallows but it never got to the level of sophistication of the S’more.
Here is the base for a S’more:
– Graham Crackers
– 1 baby blow torch if there is no bonfire around.
The concept is quite simple: put the chocolate on one graham cracker piece. Add the marshmallow on top of it and toast it with the blow torch. Since the chocolate is right under the marshmallow, it will slightly melt and it’s perfect for the S’more.
Close this sweet little sandwich with another graham piece.
What I was not expecting that evening, is that Ellie actually did the marshmallows herself – yes it just blew my mind.
One round of plain, one round of chocolate and she also did a round of “boozy marshmallows” with bourbon. Here is her awesome blog and her bourbon marshmallow recipe.
