The yogurt in the mixing bowl, the Cup is cleaned and is used as replacement for the kitchen scale at the ready. I found this as a child, has a clever and fascinating way to prepare a cake batter. A little glass of this and a little glass of it, so to speak, in the bedroom doable! Just magical 🙂 and apart from that, the lemon yogurt is a Cup cake totally delicious... Totally forgotten, I was the mug cake and this way to prepare a cake a few years ago, again on the way. My fascination was re-kindled and I have to experiment immediately around it made. Kitchen battle included. But it was worth it!

Since then, the yogurt lemon cake is one as a Cup cake, my favorite cake. In my family, he is also on the popularity scale at the very top, because he has a beautiful airy dough and tastes like refreshing lemon. He is also baking the perfect cake to have with small children, because a simple cake is not bake. Children love to fill the yogurt Cup with the ingredients and when baking with mom and dad, had fun, and also real experiences of success, which you can enjoy culinary delights at the cake table together. A delicious family pie.
