Strawberry Yoghurt Cake

This is a wonderful light and tasty strawberry yoghurt cake perfect for picnics or enjoying on a summers day. We love making this cake in a bundt cake tin as it makes a far bigger cake which you will get a lot of servings out of. If you dont have one of these you can use two normal.

The Ingredients:

The Cake:

440g NEILL’S® Plain Flour
6 Eggs (whites and yolks seperated)
400g Caster Sugar
260g Butter
260g Strawberry Yoghurt
1tsp Bicarbonate Soda
0.25tsp SaltThe Icing:
100g Icing Sugar
3tbsp Warm Water
A drop of red food colouring
0.5tsp Strawberry Flavouring

 

Recommended Equipment:
Food Mixer (Recommended Bosch MUM46A1)
Non Stick Bundt Cake Pan
Joseph Joseph Nest9 Bowls

The How-To:
Preheat oven to 170c.
Cream the butter and 300g of the sugar (keep the other 100g of the sugar aside for later) until smooth.
Beat in the egg yolks (leave the egg whites aside for later) one at a time until well combined.
Remove the cake mix from the mixer bowl and place into another large bowl, set this aside.
Ensure the mixer bowl and attachment are washed well and add the egg whites to the bowl.
Beat the egg whites on medium/high speed until soft peaks form.
Slowly add the remaining 100g of sugar to the egg whites and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
Set these egg whites aside for a few minutes.
In another large bowl sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
Fold the flour into the cake batter mixture until combined.
Fold the strawberry yoghurt into the cake batter mixture until well combined.

Now fold the egg whites into the cake batter mixture but do this gently so as not to knock out too much of the air. We need this to make the cake nice and light.

Pour the cake batter mixture into the greased bundt tin and ensure it is spread evenly around the edges.
Place in the middle of the preheated oven and bake for 50-55 mins or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Allow to cool for 10-15 mins before attempting to turn out. Leave to cool on a wire cooling rack.
Once cool you can decorate however you wish. If you are making this for a dinner party is makes a fantastic centre piece by filling the centre of the bundt cake with fresh berries and then drizzling the cake with some strawberry icing.To make the strawberry icing simply mix all the ingredients together until smooth and drizzle over the warm cake.
