Recipe by Huda salih
READY IN: 1hr 10mins
YIELD: 16 pieces




  • Put the oil in electric mixer bowl, put in sugar, beat the mixture until blended.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Mix yogurt with water.
  • Add flour in thirds alternating with yogurt and water mixture.
  • Add baking powder, baking soda and one of the variations mentioned above (or you can be creative and add whatever you like).
  • Pour the cake mixture (the mixture shouldn't be thick, it is almost watery in consistency).
  • In greased, floured cake pan (I prefer the one with the whole in the middle or a loaf pan for easy cutting).
  • Put the cake in COLD oven, set the heat at 180°C, let the cake in the oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.
  • Remove the cake from the oven,let it sit for about 10 minutes, remove from pan.
  • Let the cake cool on wire rack (or I put the cake in plastic bag and close it while the cake in it so the outer surface of the cake won't be hard, it will be soft instead.
  • Optional: You may sprinkle icing sugar on the face before cutting into pieces.
  • Serve the cake with orange juice, coffee or hot tea.
