Measurements For Yogurt Pot Cake

Asked by PhishStyx. Answered on 27th September 2017

Full question

When making the Yogurt Pot Cake and using the yogurt pot to measure out the other ingredients, do I fill the yogurt pot to the brim (like measuring flour in a measuring cup) or try to match the level where the yogurt was? There is a bit of a difference between the two. Thanks for your help.

Our answer

Nigella's Yogurt Pot Cake (from NIGELLISSIMA) is inspired by the Italian ciambella cake that was made by measuring out the ingredients using the pot or container that the yogurt comes in. When measuring the other ingredients you should fill the pot to the brim and not to the level of the yogurt. It would also be quite difficult to see the level of the yogurt in the pot once the yogurt has been scraped out.

The slight exception is for the sugar where you may want to fill the pot to just slightly below the brim for each measure. If you are unsure then you can instead use the weights provided in the recipe for the ingredients. For the US you can work on the basis that one pot is the equivalent of 2/3 of a cup but if you go to the on-line recipe and swipe the bar just above the ingredients list from "metric" to "cups" then you will see the US cup conversions.
