Marmalade & Yogurt Cake on a Sunday

Posted on Feb 5, 2012 in Blog

Sundays are usually lazy for me. There is no sleeping in, I still wake up early like on any other day. The only difference is that I can take it nice and slow. There is no rushing around the house like a mad woman, juggling ten things at once all in the name of punctuality.

Punctuality, somehow it’s inbuilt in my system and there is no escaping it. It’s a blessing and it’s a curse. A blessing for anyone giving me an appointment because I will most certainly be on time and a curse for anyone meeting me and arriving late. I will be found pacing, checking my phone, tapping my foot restlessly and looking at my watch! I never use an alarm clock because if I know I have to wake up at a given time then when I open my eyes and look at the clock on my bedside table it will be that time!

So in a way Sundays are my way of relaxing. I relax when I can take it easy and do the things I like without being chased by time. I woke this morning and decided on a freshly baked loaf of marmalade and yogurt cake. I prepared it, baked it and ate some for breakfast. It was a pleasant manner of starting the day on a positive note, with a wholesome, homemade breakfast loaf and the notion that there was no hurry to get ready, to dash out of the house and be punctual.

Here is what you need:-

125g full fat greek yogurt

50ml vegetable oil

1 lemon, zest only

1 orange, zest only

3 eggs

125g caster sugar

200g plain flour

2tsp baking powder

For the glaze

75g marmalade

1tbsp orange juice

Preheat the oven to 180C (gas) Grease and line a loaf tin.

In a large bowl beat together the yoghurt, vegetable oil, lemon and orange zest and eggs until light and fluffy. Sift in all the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

Spoon the mixture into the loaf tin and bake for about 45 minutes. (Test the cake by inserting a skewer into the centre. If the skewer comes out clean, the cake is done.)

Remove from the oven and leave to cool a little in the tin.

Meanwhile for the glaze, warm the marmalade and orange juice until the marmalade melts. Pour the glaze over the cake and set aside to cool completely.
