My Cookbook Addiction picked the tasty French Yoghurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze. I absolutely loved this recipe, so did my friend and her boyfriend when I surprised them with the mini-bundtcakes when I visited her last Friday.
I have no idea where my head was when I went groceryshopping or while I was baking, I made lots of mistakes: I forgot to buy a lemon and had no other citrusfruits, I did however have some lemon juice in the houseand squeezed some of that into the mixture. Also I accidentally put baking soda in the mixture instead of baking powder… Well they still tasted great!!
Now it was time to pick a pan for the cake, but I couldn’t find my cake pan anywhere, so I decided on making mini-bundtcakes and bite-size cupcakes. The mini-bundtcakes took about 30 minutes in the oven, the bite-size cupcakes needed 15 minutes. I topped the cakes with a lovely mango-passionfruit jam.
The recipe made 12 mini-bundtcakes and 18 mini cupcakes. I figured that 2 bite-size cupcakes are about the same size as 1 mini-bundtcake, so the entire recipe was 21 servings, this comes down to 3 WW Points per mini-bundtcake or 3 WW Points per 2 bite-size cupcakes. Not bad at all!!!
