Yoghurt Cake Recipe – Tasty and Easy

Coffee Walnut yohurt Cake Recipe

A season worker’s essential, the yoghurt cake is key to many an afternoon tea. It never seems to let me down, try lemon curd or buttercream in the centre.

It’s easy peasy and takes very little time, everyone loves yoghurt cake. When we did our Ski season in the 3 Valleys everyone made them. They were so easy to prepare in the morning, one would get breakfast ready and another would be baking a yoghurt cake.

Using flavoured yoghurt is also great.

When running catered holidays in Chamonix and the Peak District I always make a yoghurt cake. It’s moist, tasty and easy to make – pretty fail safe.
