Since my children came into our lives, the homemade cake has come along with it. There is almost always cake in our house and the smell of baking cake reminds me of my childhood and specifically the last house my parents and I moved to, because that’s where we got our first electric stove with an oven, so it was easier for my mother to bake us a cake every 15 days. So I continue the tradition and I’m baking cakes or cupcakes 2 or 3 times a month.

Cake is a favourite sweet of all because you can eat it, either for breakfast or for evening snack. Is an ideal snack to take it with you at school or at work or at an excursion. When the children go on their school trips its easier to have a cupcake than a slice of cake. Usually, the slice of cake falls apart as it goes into the bag and also falls apart on the little hands of the children who are happily running enjoying nature and freedom to do that in an open space. So the cupcake (in its paper) seems an ideal solution in the hands of children, without falling apart so easily.

- Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C / 350°F for about 25 minutes.
- The cake needs sifted flour
- If you don’t have yogurt and milk, you can put either 2/3 cup of yogurt or 2/3 cup of milk.
- Beat very well to make the mixture fluffy.
- Put more mixture on the bottom and less on top
- Let it cool enough before eating otherwise the sweet inside will burn your tongue (that’s what exactly happened to me).
