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 😉

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 !

EasiYo and Kellogg’s Breakfast Toppers

This is a fantastic combination. This was my lunch today, I am busy doing an assignment and felt my energy start to wane from hunger but now my body is fuelled and ready to go again.

EasiYo trial from Social Soup

The kids and I are SO EXCITED that Social Soup chose us amongst many other families to trial and review the EasiYo system to make real, fresh yoghurt in our own home.

I have used EasiYo before, it’s luscious seriously! it’s a pot set yoghurt and is everything as good as what you would buy in the fridge section in stores.

I love the great range of flavours and their website has a great number of interesting recipes to mix it up. No more eating yoghurt from the tub here, I’m gonna get FREAKY 😛

The very first recipe i’m going to make is Ambrosia – *Sighs* I love that stuff. I’ll be sure to upload photos here when i’ve made it.
