How to make these homemade delights

Like all the best recipes, this recipe contains a secret ingredient: vanilla yogurt. So to make this personal favorite, have a look in your refrigerator or make your way down to the supermarket and grab a medium sized /175g vanilla yogurt (see picture on the right).

You will need:

  • 1 175g tub of vanilla yogurt.
  • 1 yogurt tub (same tub) of vegtable oil.
  • 1 and 1/2 tubs of white caster sugar.
  • 3 tubs of self rising flour.
  • 3 eggs.


Preheat the oven to 180 °C , 350°F or gas mark 4.




How to

  1. Mix yogurt, caster sugar and self rising flour in a bowl.
  2. Mix in vegetable oil and eggs, stirring until smooth and add the chocolate chips (optional).
