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.
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.
