How to make this lemon yogurt poppy seed cake?

You start with fitting parchment paper to your dish, both the bottom and the sides. Then you butter or spray it and leave it aside for a while. In large mixing bowl, you combine dry ingredients. Then you whisk egg whites in another bowl, leave aside, and combine dry and wet ingredients. After you fold in egg whites, you bake it and cool, so your glaze does not slide.

What happens if you bake yogurt?

Because of its acidity, yogurt reacts with baking soda to encourage leavening. It also adds nice, tangy flavor that hardly overpowers, but instead keeps everything in balance. Plain Greek yogurt without flavours is magical ingredient to reach for when baking. It is great and healthy substitute for butter.

What yogurt is best for baking?

Plain Greek yogurt is the most versatile pick and gives you complete control over the flavor of your baked good. Go with whole-milk, full-fat Greek yogurt for the best flavor (2% can be used if you prefer)

 

Lemon juice does the same thing. It activates the baking soda or baking powder and creates a little extra loftiness in your baking!

What two cake flavors go well together?

My son loves almonds and white chocolate. Apple cake with Salted Caramel frosting is my seasonal treat. Lemon poppyseed is amazing as Banana cake with Caramel Cream cheese frosting.
