Moroccan orange almond yogurt cake

Submitted by: THALIA100
Moroccan orange almond yogurt cake

Introduction

A moist dessert cake - a reasonably low fat way to indulge cravings for something sweet. My nutritional analysis is based on using fruit sugar (or granulated fructose). This saves calories because you use 1/3 less than ordinary sugar. However, granulated sugar can be used, - just add little more.

Ingredients

    130g granulated fruit sugar
    100g almond meal
    50g white bread crumbs
    1.5 tsp baking powder
    200 ml natural 0% fat yogurt
    4 whole eggs
    1 orange
    1 lemon
    50g fruit sugar (for syrup topping)

Directions

Makes 12 servings.

Prepare the cake tin (8-9 inch diameter or 8 inch square).

Preheat oven to 150 degrees C.

Mix the sugar, almond meal, breadcrumbs and baking powder in a bowl. Grate in the zest of the lemon and orange.

Measure the yogurt into a large jug, then add the eggs and whisk with a fork until amalgamated.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry and mix quickly. Pour the batter into the prepared tin.

Bake for about 40-45 minutes, until browned and set. Fruit sugar tends to brown more quickly than ordinary, so you may need to cover the cake before the end of the cooking time and/or lower the oven temperature.

While cake is cooking, prepare the syrup by mixing the juice of the lemon and orange with 50g fruit sugar and heat gently to dissolve. Then boil for 3 minutes.

When the cake is cooked, remove from the oven, prick with a skewer or cocktail stick and pour the syrup over.

Allow to cool in the tin before serving.
