Easy Peasy Yoghurt Cake

1 small carton of flavoured yoghurt
1.5 cartons of caster sugar
3 cartons of self raising flour
1 carton of sunflower oil
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Rather than weighing the ingredients for this cake on scales, you measure them in the empty yoghurt pot.

Place all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl.  Beat them together with an electric whisk until smooth (or use a fork or hand whisk). Line a large loaf tin, pour in and bake for 1 1/2 hours at 160 degrees centigrade or gas mark 3 for one and a half hours.

My two daughters, age three and six, needed very little help to make the cake.  You can use any flavour yoghurt, the end result doesn’t differ that much in taste.  We used a small low fat, Asda, branded yoghurt.  

You can make small muffins rather than a loaf but I have never tried this.
