Does anyone have a good recipe for cake or muffins using natural yoghurt? I think I have a decent store cupboard of basic baking items. Possibly blueberry muffins or something similar??

I don't follow recipes but quite often glug yoghurt into cake mixture. It's nice in chocolate cake and makes it lovely and moist. Fine in muffins too.

I do a banana bread with natural yoghurt.

Normally 3-4 bananas, 225g s-r flour, dash of a raising agent, 2-3 eggs, splash of olive oil, 25g honey/brown sugar and enough natural yoghurt to make it runny enough to pour into the lined tin.

I live in a hot country anyway but always store anything baked with yoghurt in the fridge.

Nigella's Buttermilk Birthday Cake

250g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp salt 200ml buttermilk (or 75g yogurt mixed with 125ml semi-skinned milk)
f inely grated zest of an unwaxed lemon, plus 1-2 tbsp lemon juice
125g softened butter, plus extra for greasing
200g caster sugar
3 large free-range eggs

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas 4. Butter a 23cm ring mould cake tin. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate and salt together. Mix the buttermilk (or yogurt mixture) and lemon zest. Cream the butter and sugar together. Beat in the eggs one at a time, adding a little of the flour with the last one. Gradually add the rest of the flour with the buttermilk, one after the other, until thoroughly mixed. Pour into the tin and bake for about 30 minutes or until well risen and pale golden brown. Loosen the sides of the cake with a round-bladed knife and turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
