Yoghurt Cake (coconut and lime)

by therecipebank

Adapted this from a recipe I saw on netmums and liked that the ingredients are weighed out using only a yogurt pot.

  • 1 drop vanilla essence (optional)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 yoghurt pots caster sugar
  • 2 1/2 yoghurt pots self-raising flour sieved
  • 1/2 yoghurt pot desiccated coconut
  • 1 yoghurt pot of oil
  • 125g coconut yoghurt (use the pot to measure out other ingredients)
  • zest of lime
  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix the wet ingredients, then add the dry.
  2. Place in a greased and lined loaf tin
  3. Bake for 40 minutes at 180C / gas mark 4
  4. Top if required with juice of lime mixed with a little extra caster sugar to make a drizzle topping.

Could use only flour and no coconut, plain yoghurt and chocolate chips. It was a light moist cake and did not miss the butter.

No Bake Bites

by therecipebank

This evening I made these delicious balls of yumminess for a picnic tomorrow. I found the recipe on: but slightly amended the recipe as I don’t like flax seeds.

1 cup oats

1 cup coconut flakes (toasted at 180c for 4 minutes)

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup ground almonds                                                                                                                                   

1/4 cup smashed digestive biscuit / graham crackers

1/3 cup honey

1 tsp. vanilla

Mix together all the ingredients in a large bowl. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Roll into golf ball sized balls. Enjoy!
