Extremely Creamy Yogurt, Raspberry and Lime Cake

Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

– Lewis Carrol, Alice in Wonderland

Allow me to admit that I’m a bit stressed out lately. We all have these moments in our lives, right? So many things to do, not enough time to do them all. Dreaded feelings that we could do better. In nearly everything.

I wish I could do six impossible things before breakfast.

I have to force myself to stop and do me activities. Play the piano and make cakes. Blog about it too, why not? Thank goodness for cake. In my case I’ll add a suffix, thank goodness for cake for breakfast. I’ve been rushing around so much lately that, apart from my sacred morning coffee, unless there is cake for breakfast, – who can resist that? – I forget to eat anything all morning. Not ideal, I know. I think I’ve even lost weight due to this forgetfulness.

This is far from being the most photogenic cake in the world, but it doesn’t matter what the cake looks like when I’m using coffee to help wake me up. The taste is what matters. The moral of the story is that perhaps I should step back and get back to making cake for breakfast a little more often.

Yogurt, Raspberry and Lime Cake

Indeed I did intentionally make this cake extremely creamy. And ugly. If you are like (cough) Mr. H. and hate anything creamy, I was going to say that this cake is not for you. However, if that is the case, you don’t really need to stop reading and get as far away from my post as possible. You can simply adapt the recipe by only using half of the yogurt here. Use only 125g of yogurt. That way you would have a cake with a more normal consistency with regards to dryness. Also, as the mixture would be denser to begin with, you would have a fair amount of raspberries suspended at the top of the cake. It would look prettier.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups flour, 250g yogurt, 100g raspberries, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 lime, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 egg, 50g butter

Preheat the oven to 180ºC.

Melt the butter in a bain-marie.

Grease a baking pan with a small amount of butter.

Add the yogurt, egg, sugar and the juice of half a lime in a large bowl. Whisk. Add the flour and baking powder. Mix together. Add the melted butter. Mix. Add the raspberries. Mix.

Pour into the baking tray. Bake for 40 minutes.

Thank you for reading!

    You make baking sound so simple. Will you eat all of this by yourself?

    This looks great! I like creamy, but it depends as well. I realised I don’t like any recipe that says fudgy. It’s just too sweet and rich for my liking >_<

      It’s creaminess is only because of the yogurt, and raspberries… so it must be healthy, right? (no fudge!)

    I love sticky and gooey cakes. Sorry to hear that you’ve been feeling stressed lately Sofia 🙁 I go through those moments all the time, I think the cure is to take a looooong holiday!! You end up poor afterwards but with a much clearer head! I’m glad that the cake had a bit of a therapeutic effect though. It looks beautiful and I do relate to sometimes just wanting something creamy and delicious. Sending you heaps of hugs, glad that you’re taking time out for YOU xxx

      I take it you have a clearer head then now 🙂 I think I saw on Instagram you’ll be going back soon! On one hand it must be nice to get back but on the other hand I’m sure you’ve had such a great time that you just want to continue wandering around Europe. What an amazing last few months you’ve had! Hugs xxx

    Well I happen to think the cake is quite photogenic with the dimple running down it’s length! Chin up, Sofia and chill through the stress! More piano, more cake for breakfast and more free-association posts!

    Hey Sofia! So sorry you’re having a stressful time. Hopefull it’ll pass soon and I agree with Sue (above) that more carefree posts will do wonders for a lot of bloggers (myself included). Btw I love ‘creamy’ too, makes me feel like the everything is going to be okay!

      Hi Shamim, yeah, I’ll need to think more carefree! Maybe I need to make another extra creamy cake too. Hugs!

    This cake SORT of reminds me of the ricotta bread I made recently for a young woman recently. It was creamy and moist…not as creamy as yours, though. I will have to add more of what makes the ricotta bread creamy–the ricotta!!!! It looks delicious, by the way. I like to eat cake for breakfast myself, that way I can work off the calories over the course of the day! By the way, I see you did survive the funk!

      Ricotta bread, (GASP!) sounds great!

    Looks delicious ~ and “creamy” cakes seem rare in my experience, and perhaps that is what makes them more delicious. This looked great 🙂

      Creamy cakes are quite messy to serve though…
