Below is the English translation and some interesting (at least I think they are interesting) tidbits.
Como Fazer O Bolo de Iogurte
É assim que eu faço o bolo:
1. Primero, aqueço o forno para três.
2. Depois, vou buscar a tigela e a colher.
3. Depois, ponho un recipiente de iogurte na tigela.
4. Depois, junto um recipiente de iogurte com óleo.
5. Depois, junto dois recipientes com açugar.
6. Depois, junto dois recipientes com farinha com fermento.
7. Junto 4 ovos e combino todos os ingredientes até ficar liso.
8. Despejo na formua de buraco untada.
9. Coloco no forno.
10. Finalmente, quando está dourado tiro do forno (cobrir – cubado até a faca sair limpa)
This is how I make the cake:
1. Heat the oven to 3. About 300-350 degrees. (The ovens are very different here, it took me a while to learn to use them, and sometimes I still am not sure. I usually cook almost everything at 3, my oven goes from 1-9. Laura’s has low & high)
2. Next, gather a mixing bowl and spoon
3. Next, put the yogurt you have chosen to the bowl The yogurt container I mention is a regular single serving container, a large container would make a TON of cake. They also don’t use measuring devices here in Portugal, the yogurt container is the closest it gets to uniform measurements from person to person.
4. Next, add a yogurt container of vegetable oil (you can cut the oil in half and it will still be great)
5. Next add 2 yogurt containers of sugar
6. Add 2 yogurt containers of self-raising flour
7. Add 4 eggs and then mix until smooth
8. Pour into a greased & floured bundt cake pan
9. Place in the oven
10. Finally, when it is light brown remove from the oven It will probably bake between 30-45 min. I take it out when the batter doesn’t stick to a noodle/knife. If it started to get too brown before it is done, you can cover the top of the cake until it is finished. And it usually shakes out better if you do it while it is still warm.
I hope you all enjoy this recipe. I highly recommend it. I have already made it several times. It is a spongy cake – a little like pound cake. Very Portuguese. They put a lot of eggs in everything. You can substitute any flavor of yogurt and it will be delicious. In Portugal they love yogurt. There are two whole very long isles of yogurt in the closest grocery store to me. You can get cookie flavored, coconut flavored, mango vanilla, passion fruit, banana & orange & cookie flavored (you get the idea). I have made the cake several times with strawberry yogurt and then put fresh strawberries on top to serve it. Very yummy. I think I am going to make a glaze next time.
