Greek Yogurt Semolina Cake – VIDEO RECIPE
how to cook Greek Yogurt Semolina Cake?
To start, preheat your oven to 180°C (350⁰F). Grab a large bowl and crack an egg into it, then give it a light whisking.
Next, add some sugar and vanilla sugar to the beaten egg, followed by some yogurt, baking powder, and salt. Mix everything together until it’s well combined.
TIPS: If you happen to be out of yogurt, no worries! You can easily substitute it with a combination of sour cream and milk. Just add 5 tbsp. (75g) of sour cream and 3 tbsp. (50g) of milk to the dough.
Now it’s time to gradually add some semolina to the egg-sugar mixture. Pour in some melted butter and give it a good stir until the dough becomes smooth and creamy.
Take your washed figs and remove the stems. Cut each fruit in half lengthwise.
Grab a 20 cm springform baking tin and grease it with butter. Sprinkle semolina over butter as well. Pour the dough into the baking tin.
TIPS: If you don’t have a springform pan, don’t worry! There are four alternative ways to replace it when baking.
Arrange the fig halves on top of the dough in a circle, with the cut side facing up.
Pop the baking tin into the preheated to 180°C (350⁰F) oven and let it bake for about 30-35 minutes. Or until it turns a beautiful golden brown.
