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.
Tonight was a diner all in memory of our recent trip to India 🙂
My husband brought a big bag of litchies back from China town and we got Samosas from his family in Connecticut.
Yes. I didn’t do the Samosas my self, I am far from that level…
The only thing I had to actually do was to prepare a yoghurt sauce to go with the samosas.
– 1 or 2 table spoon of yoghurt
– add some salt, garlic, coriander depending on your taste.
Any other spice can go too, and I regretted not having any dill as it would have been perfect with the yoghurt.
When you go out for brunch in New York City, you often find Granola Yoghurt with fruits. Actually you even find it at Starbucks…
When I came to the US the first time 3 years back, we would travel a lot to various cities with my friends, getting cheap deals and ending up getting coffee & breakfast on the go at Starbucks.
I discovered Granola Yoghurt with fruits there and loved it.
I do it quite often at home now, it’s a good change from eggs & omelets 🙂
I usually use blackberries and bananas but this time I had peach and decided to try.
Yoghurt Granola with fruits:
– 2 tablespoons of yoghurt (either regular or Greek yoghurt)
– 2 tablespoon of Granola
– 1 peach
– 1/2 teaspoon of maple sirup
Of course you can adapt the proportions depending in your taste 🙂
The maple sirup was an idea from my Japanese friend Mariko, it adds a nice sugary taste!
Oh and we had Chinese Jasmin tea to go with it – love it!
