Yogurt Pound Cake


Yogurt Pound Cake

Ingredients:

3 eggs (separated into egg yolks and egg whites)

1 cup (4 oz / 114 grams) of yogurt strawberry flavor (or any flavor of your choice)

1 1/2 (300 grams) cup sugar

2 1/2(312 grams) cup all-purpose flour

1/2(120ml) cup vegetable oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)

A pinch of salt

Instructions:

Pour 1 ½ cups of sugar over 3 egg yolks. Remember to use the yogurt cup for all the measurements in this recipe.

Using an egg beater, beat the egg yolks and sugar until you get a creamy whitish mixture. Add ½ cup of vegetable oil and mix in using a spatula.

Once the oil is completely incorporated, add the yogurt and continue mixing gently using a rotational movement, moving the spatula from the bottom to up.

Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, you can also use almond extract or another flavor of your choice.

Add 1 teaspoon of baking powder and continue mixing. To spice things up a bit, add 1 teaspoon of ground ginger to the batter. You can either omit it or replace it with another spice like ground cinnamon or cardamom.

Add the flour to the batter little by little. Mix in some of the flour and when it’s completely incorporated, add a little more until done.

In a separate bowl, beat 3 egg whites with a pinch of salt using an egg beater. Make sure that the egg whites have no traces of egg yolks when you separate the eggs, and that the egg beater heads are clean and dry. Beat the egg whites for about 5 minutes until they get firm with white peaks.

Add the egg whites little by little to the batter, mix gently in a rotational movement with a spatula, and when that portion of the egg white is completely incorporated then add a little more until done.

Butter the pan, then cover it with parchment paper then add the butter to the pan, and shake the pan to even out the batter.

Preheat your oven to 360 F degrees which are 180 C degrees. and bake the cake for around 50 minutes.

Let the cake cool to room temperature before slicing.

Enjoy...!
