Method Prep:15min › Cook:1hr › Ready in:1hr15min
Pre-heat the oven to 160 C / Gas 3 and grease a 20cm cake tin.
Empty the yoghurt tub into a medium sized mixing bowl and keep the empty tub.
Add 3 almost-full 'tubs' of caster sugar to the yoghurt (use the empty yogurt tub as a measurement), and whisk well.
Add the 4 eggs and whisk the mixture well.
Using the yoghurt tub again measure 2 tubs of self-rasing flour and sift this into the mixture gradually, stirring well after each addition.
Yes, it is very easy to make, but it is weird - very sweet, but texture is neither cake nor bread. Reminded me of the greaseless sponges my mother used to make after the war (yes I am that old), when there was still rationing. Bit like the sponges used for trifles. OK on the day it was made, but lack of fat meant it didn't store well. I used a cherry yoghurt, full fat, and coudn't taste the cherry in the finished cake. Won't bother with any more.
I tweaked it by using 2 tubs, not 3, of sugar. - 07 Dec 2016
