6oz lowfat cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl and using an electric mixer on low speed, mix together
the cream cheese and butter until well blended. Blend in the sugar.
In a separate bowl, sift the flour, salt and baking powder together. Gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix until well blended. Add in the milk. Mix forabout 1 minute, and then add yogurt, vanilla, and eggs. Blend for 1-2 minutes.
Grease and flour a 9-inch loaf pan. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 1hour, or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool on a wire rack before removing it from the pan.
Makes 1 loaf or 12 servings
Makes a nice treat with a cup of tea....I sometimes add some glace cherries to turn it into cherry bun.
We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled.
The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over
and let the beautiful stuff out. - Ray Bradbury
