We’ve got a fun giveaway this week, sponsored by Stonyfield Farms and YoBaby Yogurt!
Katie from Stoneyfield Farms wrote me saying:
Stonyfield’s YoBaby line of organic yogurts marks its 10th birthday this year by reformulating YoBaby to include vitamin D and zinc, both known to boost immunity and promote the development of strong bones and teeth.
Of course, YoBaby is still all natural and certified organic, made with milk from cows fed organic feed and not treated with antibiotics or artificial growth hormones – since we’ve always believed organic is not only better for baby, but better for the planet as well.
And so when she offered me some freebies for a giveaway, I jumped on the chance!
One lucky reader will win the Stonyfield farms YoBaby giveaway. Here’s what that includes: a YoBaby bowl with lid, organic YoBaby bib, and 5 Free coupons! The ways to enter at the bottom of the post.
But now, on to a recipe…
The French are renowned the world over for their innovative, elegant and refined cuisine. So it should come as no surprise that they start learning to cook at a very young age, although it may be more ‘short’ than haute, cuisine.
This recipe is for a classic and simple French dessert, the gateau au yaourt, or French yogurt cake. Kids start learning to make it as soon as they can stir it together. I like it because it is endlessly customizable-not only through the flavor of yogurt used but also through the add-ins possible, limited only by your imagination.
French Yogurt Cake
- 1 small container plain or flavored yogurt (use the container as a measurement for the following ingredients)
- 2 containers flour
- 2 containers sugar
- ½ container oil
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- Flavoring to taste, according to the flavor of yogurt chosen (vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger etc)
Preheat oven to approximately 375F. The temperature is converted from celsius and individual ovens vary, so feel free to adjust as necessary. Mix all ingredients together and pour into baking dish. Bake until a cake tester, or a fork, come out clean– 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy.
