Vanilla Yogurt Loaf



I discovered a huge pot of vanilla yogurt in the refrigerator that was almost at it's sell by date the other day and as I hate wasting anything, I decided to make a cake with it.  But not just any cake . . .  a deliciously dense and moreish Vanilla Yogurt Loaf cake!

It's loosely based upon Ina Garten's Lemon Yogurt Loaf Cake . . . with all of the lemon flavours eradicated and replaced by Vanilla flavours . . .

 

I always use vanilla paste for cakes like this, where you really want the vanilla flavour to be especially pronounced.   You can use regular vanilla of course, but I think that it's well worth it to use the vanilla paste, especially when you save it for special things like this lovely loaf cake!

So you've got a dense and moist cake, flavoured with both vanilla and vanilla yogurt, and then you baste it with a vanilla syrup when it comes out of the oven . . .  letting it soak into all of that dense cakiness .  .  and the once it is cooled completely, you pour a vanilla icing glaze over top.

Triple Vanilla Yumminess!

Oh so good with a hot drink.   I love my lemon/ginger tea in the mornings.   Just squeeze some lemon into a mug, add a slice of fresh ginger, bash it about a bit and then cover with boiling water and let it steep.  Comfort in a mug.  Gets my day off to a great start . . .

Oops!!  Did I just admit I eat cake for breakfast"   I reckon I did!

While the cake is cooking, whisk together the first glazing ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the mixture is completely clean.  Set aside.
