I think i made this recipe just so i could use the word “cakelet” it just made me laugh. and really, on a rainy February day who doesn’t need a laugh. a super simple recipe that came with the nordic ware cake pan. i couldn’t find the recipe on the website so here it is. it really is delicious.
1/2 soft butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice and 1 tsp of lemon zest
2 cups of sifted cake flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup of plain yogurt
1/2 cup of buttermilk
preheat oven to 370 F. grease and flour pan. in large bowl, blend maragarine and sugar together on medium speed for two minutes, until light and fluffy. add eggs, vanilla, lemon juice and zest. add the yogurt and buttermilk and blend. add dry ingredients and mix on low speed for one minute. scrape bowl and continue to beat on medium for two more minutes. divide batter into pan and bake for 25 minutes. cool ten minutes and invert onto a cooling rack. i had to cut the tops of mine as they were too full and resembled muffin tops, but that was okay with my family as they happily ate the parts i cut off.
these would be delicious with blueberries and whip cream!
