Passionfruit yogurt cake

I was attracted by the bright and rich yellow colour of this cake when I first saw the post by Honey Bee Sweets. I have modified this cake again to replace sour cream with yogurt for a slightly healthier option.

The texture of this cake is really good but need extra passion fruit syrup to serve to enhance its passion fruit taste.
 


 



Here's the recipe from honeybeesweets

Ingredients
300g plain flour
225g caster sugar
2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda
220g unsalted butter, room temperature
4 eggs
100g low fat sour cream
70ml fresh milk
Juice of 4 passion fruits
pinch of salt

I use half the ingredients and 150g of sieved passion fruit pulp from can.

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Butter and line and grease a loaf tin (10 cm x 20 cm).
In a mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar together till light and fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time till well mixed in.
Add in yogurt and stir till incorporated. Then add in the passion fruit juice and mix well.
Add in flour, baking powder and salt and stir till just blend in.
Pour the cake batter into the loaf tin and bake for 40 to 45 mins or till the cake tester comes out clean. Cool on rack.

Happy Baking.

  21. This is very moist looking. I have a very similar recipe and use Greek yogurt. I usually bake a few more and freeze them. They are very handy. Also great with orange!
