Pound Cake with Yogurt

Few days back one of my friend asked me some cake recipe where instead of butter we can use vegetable oil. And I asked my Ma about that because in my child hood days she used to prepare cakes for us and once she used some vegetable oil in cake because that time the butter was not at home. So I confirmed about one thing that we can make cake without butter also.

And I prepared some simple pound cake without butter and extra I added some yogurt this idea I got from a cookery show. And the result is fabulous, a very easy way to make your family 

Preparation time: 20 mints.
Baking time: 50 to 55 mints.

1.All purpose flour: 1 ½ cup.
2.Eggs: 3.
3.Granulated sugar : 1 ½ cup.
4.Vegetable oil:  170 ml or ¾ cup.
5.Vanila yogurt : 170 ml or ¾ cup.
6.One table spoon baking powder.
7.One table spoon vanilla essence.
8.One small lemon's zest.


Pre heat your oven in 175 degree c.

Now take one big bowl and add the yogurt into this beat well, now add the sugar and beat till the sugar mix nicely.

Now add the eggs into the bowl and mix nicely.

Next add the vegetable oil and make the mixture smooth.

Now add the baking powder, vanilla essence and the lemon's zest and mix with everything nicely.

Finally add the all-purpose flour and mix well doesn't beat so much.

Take a loaf pan and grease this with little butter and sprinkle some flour into that. 

Now pour the batter into the pan and bake it for 40 to 45 mints or till the inserting of a tooth pick into the cake doesn't come out with unbaked batter.
