Good good good!!! This is so versatile and quick! I love messimg with recipes and this a cake you can do that with. I made this maple-flavored with maple flavor extract and used brown sugar. I'm going to try this again different ways, for sure!
The only changes I've made to this recipe is that I've used margarine instead of oil and added 1.5tsp of vanilla. This recipe isn't very specific about how much you should beat the ingredients, which is really important for the texture! Mine came out WAY too dense (didn't beat enough?)... I also used large eggs, and it was WAY too eggy. The sweetness was good just right, not too sweet, but I could still taste the baking powder (I used 1tsp). Overall, the amount of ingredients is right (for 3 small eggs), but this recipe should give more directions than just 'mix everything until combined'. Also, definitely do the variations because it's rather bland, even with the vanilla.
This was very good! I love using yogurt, so this recipe peaked my interest. I ended up adding some salt and vanilla, out of habit. Then I took Beth's suggestion and added some orange marmalade, dried cranberries and some ginger. Excellent! Very moist! Thanks!
Well, the first time I tried to make it, I forgot to add eggs! Needless to say, that version wasn't a success. But I tried it again, and I'm glad I did. It was a yummy moist cake that went perfect with our ice cream sundaes. Will make again; it's a great way to use up yogurt.
Such a great recipe! As a previous reviewer posted - so easy to modify and play with :) The modifications I made were as follows - 1) I used homemade yogurt, which has the consistency of Greek yogurt 2) Instead of the 1 C of white sugar, I used 1/2 C white sugar and 1/2 C brown sugar 3) I substituted apple sauce for the vegetable oil 4) just as a note - 0.25 oz yeast = 2.5 tsp yeast, which I used. 5) For additional spice, I added 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp allspice, and 1/8 tsp cloves. For aesthetic appeal, I spiraled honey over the batter (which is quite thick so the honey doesn't sink in or anything), and the finished product had a pretty top :) Lots of changes, but it turned out great!
Judging from the recipe as written, it would have been very bland, thus 3 stars. I added cinnamon, vanilla and ground cloves, as well as replaced 1/2 the sugar with packed brown sugar, as another reviewer suggested. I will say that the yeast in this recipe, IMO, serves no purpose because a yeast needs time to activate.
The next time I make this, I will replace the yeast with 1/2 t. baking soda that will react with the yogurt to create pockets of air and give this recipe it's cakey-ness. :)
i like it. So easy to make but so yummy. thanks
Wow, sooooo yummy and really easy to make! You really just dump all the ingredients into the pan and bake. So good, haha. Altho I didn't really understand the whole 13" round pan, and I just baked it in a 9" round pan, which was definitely big enough. I also did the cinnamon version, and it was sooo good. I also added a little more yogurt and less sugar, yum!
