Yogurt and Goji Berries OatBran Cake

  • 4 heaped tablespoons of oat bran
  • 4 tablespoons of powdered skim milk
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup fat free sugar free yogurt
  • 3 eggs (or 1 egg + 3 egg whites)
  • 2 heaped tablespoons of goji berries
  • 1 tea bag: fruit flavoured tea works better but you can use regular tea
  • sweetener

 

  1. Center the oven racks and preheat to 350F.
  2. In a small bowl, put the goji berries, add the fruit-flavoured tea bag and cover with hot water. Add sweetener to taste and rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine oat bran, powdered milk, cornstarch, baking powder, eggs and yogurt with 1 tablespoon of sweetener and a pinch of salt. Pour batter into a silicone mold or cake pan (if you use a cake pan, coat it lightly with cooking spray)
  4. Drain the berries and add to the batter.
  5. Give the cake pan one or two gentle drops onto the counter. With this old trick the batter surface becomes smooth, and the cake rises evenly.
  6. Put the pan into the preheated oven, over the rack (without any baking sheet underneath it)
  7. Bake at 350F for 35 to 40 minutes. If you don’t want the cake to get too dark, cover the mold loosely with aluminium foil just after 15 minutes of baking.
  8. Cake is done when a toothpick poked in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a rack 15 minutes and then invert onto rack to cool completely.
