Marble yoghurt pound cake
I have been waiting for a vegan pound cake recipe for a long time (well since I became vegan in April!). When Kinokuniya had a 20% sale, Stella told me that I can go and get any book I want on discount on her member card. How can I resist! So I bought a Japanese felt toy craft book (which I made the toy lipstick for Georgia), a Tokyo city guide book (I'm going there next April!!! Yay!) and the wonderful and long awaited VEGANOMICON!
I saw the recipe in the book and I just had to try it! I added two tablespoon of 100% Valrhona cocoa powder (hmmm...heavenly chocolatey) to 1/4 of the batter, used Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla extract and omit the lemon zest. Verdict: Yummy to my tummy! The aroma of the cake fills up my senses! I love the smell of the orange in the cake. I really like the combination of orange and chocolate especially the orange pudding cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take over the World! Georgia had a bit of the pound cake and kept asking for more. She's very fussy over her food and I'm glad she likes the cake. I love it too! I'll be trying out pandan flavour the next time round. I've got pound cake for tomorrow's tea time!
