Vanilla Yoghurt Cake with Orange Glaze

 
On Thursday, I delivered a speech at a seminar.  I have been working on weekends for two months, writing a paper, and preparing slides, then practising my presentation.  It is such a relief to finally have it off my plate!  No matter what the feedback is eventually (attendees fill out feedback sheets which will be analysed and the results provided to me), it is done and dusted, and that is an achievement in itself.  This means I am free to bake and blog and watch TV again!
 
A cake that I made last week was a Vanilla Yoghurt Cake with Orange Glaze that I found here on Peabody's blog. I had yoghurt, I had an orange, so this was the perfect cake at the time.



This one was a hit at work because someone commented to me that it wasn't too sweet. I liked it because it was so light and airy.  The only change I made to the recipe was to use vanilla sugar as I didn't have any vanilla beans.

It's a perfect tea-time cake - I'd definitely make this cake again.

looks like my sort of cake - and congrats on presenting your seminar - they really are like ducks swimming with most of the activity being unseen

Well done on your presentation. I think one of the nice things about doing presentations/stressful work tasks is that afterwards, the relief is so incredible!

This cake also looks incredible. Just my sort of thing :)

I hate having things like that hanging over me - it's a relief to get them done..particularly if you can get back to baking lovely cakes like this!
