Chocolate Yoghurt Cake

I wanted to bake a cake using the EasiYo yoghurt and see if it works as well as a regular ‘shop bought’ yoghurt. And yes it does !!

This cake is deliciously moist, rich and perfect with coffee or on it’s own like i’m scoffing a piece right now πŸ˜‰

Ingredients

2 Cups self raising flour
1/2 Generous cups good quality Cocoa powder
1 Cup loosely packed brown sugar
1/2 Cup Strawberry Jam
3/4 Cup sweetened Greek Yoghurt
3 Eggs
200g Melted butter

For the topping

1 Bag oreos
2 Cups icing sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla sugar
40g Soft butter
2 Tablespoons milk

Method

Preheat oven to 170C and line a round cake tin.

Combine the flour, cocoa and brown sugar. Add the rest of the cake ingredients and beat until fluffy – About 5 minutes or 2 minutes in a stand mixer.

Bake for approximately 1 hour in the middle of the oven or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack and leave to cool until completely cold.

Beat the icing sugar, vanilla sugar, butter and milk until smooth and of a spreadable consistency. Add more milk if mixture is too firm.

Spread onto the cold cake and decorate with halved Oreos and an Oreo crumb.

ENJOY !
