I have vivid memories of yogurt cake in my childhood. Waiting for the cake to cool in the red loaf pan – the red loaf pan we still bake in it when we come visit my parents in the Basque Country. I brought the cake out into the balcony so it cooled faster and I simply waited.
Such anticipation in a cake.
A couple of summer ago when we were visiting my parents, We found a small blueberry farm. We have been going back every summer since then. This year the blueberries seemed larger than ever and we picked away. Something close to ten pounds of fresh blueberries filling buckets and more buckets.
We enjoyed eating them as they were but also made lots of jam and this yogurt cake.
I never tire of yogurt cake. I have different versions of it in this blog and in my book, but all hold similar ratios of fat, sugar and flour.
Try it and you will see.
Now, I am back to editing more photos of my trip to Iceland. Shall share soon as I don’t think words would do it justice. I need images.
