This cake is moist and filled with fruit. The yoghurt adds a creamy texture and compliments the sharp blueberries perfectly. It’s a great cake to make to have on hand for when friends come over for a cuppa, as it’s not too indulgent, but still delicious enough to serve as a treat. It also freezes well so you can cut up into slices and defrost as and when you fancy a piece. The kids won’t complain if they find a slice in their lunchbox as a treat every now and then, either. If you’ve not tried baking with yoghurt before, give it a go, it’s a really easy way to cook.
