Autumn is just around the corner and with that comes a harvest time for alot of delicious fruits and veggies. So in case you are facing a fruit overload don't worry, I have the perfect recipe for you. Last week I, myself , was a bit overwhelmed with peaches, but didn't feel like spending a full afternoon in the kitchen making jams and preserving them. So to help myself with moving some of the fruit I decided to make a peach yogurt cake. This is one of my favourite cakes to make in the summer or autumn. Apart from being incredibly simple, (I just love recipes where you throw everything together and it's done in 2 minutes) thanks to the yogurt dough, the cake base is light and moist while the fruit topping is quite refreshing. Also, thanks to a shorter baking time, if you keep the fruit in halves it's still quite crisp and fresh. It's just a perfect cake to serve when you're sitting in your garden sipping a cup of tea or coffee and enjoying the sunshine!
Peach Yogurt Cake
- 2 cups of Greek Yogurt
- 2 cups of All-Purpose Flour
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 pack of vanilla sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking powder
- peaches, halved or sliced
- 40 g of cold butter
- 40 g of powder sugar
- 50 g of all purpose flour
- Optional: a dash of cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 375 Fahrenheit.
- Grease a proper size baking sheet or cake pan or line it with a parchment paper. For a thinner cake choose larger sheet. I used rounded 10 inch cake pan.
- Place all of the ingredients (except of the fruit) in a mixing bowl and mix well.
- Move the dough on a baking sheet. Top with peach halves or slices.
- Place all the ingredients for streusel in a bowl. Work with your fingers until well incorporated and crumbly.
- Sprinkle the cake with your streusel.
- Bake for about 30 min or until golden brown and the cake tester comes out clean.
- if you don't like the topping you don't have to use it, instead once the cake is cool powder it with icing sugar
- the cake base goes very well with any kind of fruit so you can use plums, berries, apples... whatever you like instead of peaches
- don't be afraid to completely cover this cake with fruits, the more the better
- you can mix different types of fruits like plums and peaches for example, results will be delicious
