Glazed Orange Yogurt Cake

After a long weekend of packing my office stuff because my company is relocating i finally got the time to mess around in my kitchen again... i never tried baking with yogurt even though there are dozen of yogurt recipes all around so i decided to make a cake with yogurt today =D simple and nice




Glazed Orange Yogurt Cake

rind of 2 orange
1 tsp vanilla essence

Orange Glaze

Yogurt makes bakes soft and fluffy.
I love using yogurt, especially for muffins, as I usually detest the dense, crumbly texture of the baking powder laden muffins.

I think I'll packing stuff away at office too, soon. LOL! Your cakes look so moist! I always love the tang that orange rind imparts! Plus, you can always find oranges in my pantry.

Although my current office nvr move the location b4 (which this is the 1st time how I wish will be moving nearer to my estate so wont be from East to West :P) but the office space has expanded a few times so we ve to do the packing and moving, hate that!

The cake looks soft and yummy!
