The "Easiest Cake Ever" Recipe

This week, my super cool Spanish flatmate and I have made this cake twice. The first time was for her boyfriend's birthday on Monday and the second because we both passed some of our exams for University, so we wanted to celebrate and give ourselves strength to keep on studying. Cristina is the one who told me about this recipe, apparently well-known in Spain, so I went to find it online (here) and thought I'd translate it for you guys on here. You are supposed to measure every ingredient with a yoghurt pot. It's really, really simple and tastes delicious!

1 yoghurt
1 yoghurt pot of sunflower oil
2 yoghurt pots of sugar
3 yoghurt pots of flour
3 eggs
1 sachet of baking powder
A bit of butter for the mold
(+ personally, I would add some vanilla sugar or cacao powder in the mix to give it an extra flavor)
Preheat the oven at 180°C (thermostat 6; 350°F).
Put the yoghurt in a bowl and use its pot to measure the rest of the ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs and the 2 pots of sugar. Add the baking powder, the flour and the oil. Add the yoghurt. Mix until the dough is homogeneous and thin.
Put some butter and flour in your mold to keep the cake from sticking to it when you'll take it out of the oven. Put the mold in the oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes. Take it out of the oven and of the mold and let it cool.
We decorated ours with M&M's and other little birthday decorations, and spread some Nutella all over it to make it extra-delicious. Decorate as you wish, as this cake is really neutral and can go with everything, either as a dessert or for breakfast! Enjoy!
