This is my go-to recipe for play date snacks, school lunch treats and coffee dates with grown-ups (which, sadly, happens less often than kid play dates). I often get the kids in on making this easy coffee cake recipe – making it a family activity.
You will need:
1 cup of vanilla yogurt
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of ground flax seeds (make fiber your friend!
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
In 1st bowl mix together yogurt and baking soda. Set aside (it will double in size).
Tip: have kids measure, pour and mix the ingredients.
In 2nd bowl mix together dry ingredients. Then add eggs, milk and oil. Mix well.
Then, add yogurt/baking soda.
Spray bundt pan with cooking spray. Spoon in half the batter. Sprinkle brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Then layer remaining batter on top of brown sugar/cinnamon.
Bake in pre heated 350 oven for 45 minutes.
Serve with hot chocolate and you have a great après school or après skating snack!
