Cook's Hideout: Orange-Yogurt Cake and a Upcoming Review

Orange-Yogurt Cake and a Upcoming Review

I was so excited when CSN stores recently contacted me to review one of their products. CSN Stores has over 200 amazing online stores where you can almost find anything you need whether it be a sofa or a suitcase, a crib or a cookie sheet. It is going to be really difficult to decide on what to review.

Coming to Orange-Yogurt Cake, this recipe has been in my drafts for a long time. I had to use up some extra yogurt and made this cake from Martha Stewart's website. It came out so moist and delicious and extremely easy to make. Here's the recipe:

Recipe from Martha Stewart.
Wholewheat Pastry Flour (or AP flour) - 1 cup
Granulated Sugar - 1/2 cup + 2tbsp
Baking powder - 1/2tsp
Baking soda - 1/8tsp
Salt - 1/2tsp
Plain Yogurt - 1/2 cup (I used 1%)
Vegetable Oil - 1/4 cup
Orange Zest - 1 tsp
Orange juice - 1tbsp
Egg - 1, large
Pure Vanilla extract - 1/2tsp
Confectioner's sugar - for sifting

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch round cake pan.
  • Stir flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, yogurt, oil, orange zest and juice, egg, and vanilla in a bowl. Pour into the prepared pan.
  • Bake until a cake tester comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
  • Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve.
All of you in US, have a fun long weekend and everyone else have a great week.
