This is my husbands neice Nuriye and when we saw her last she was very excited and wanted to make a cake to post on this blog. She lives in an area of Adana and this cake is typical of what young girls her age are learning to cook. The cake was light and moist so all in all she did a great job and it tasted great.

1 cup of sugar
1 cup of yogurt
3.5 cups of flour
1/2 cup of olive oil
1 tsp baking powder or use SR flour
In a bowl whisk the eggs and the sugar together, after a few minutes add the yogurt and the oil. Mix well. Add in the desired amount of coco powder and the baking powder, mix well. Slowly add in the flour until everything is well combined. Pour into cake tin and bake in a preheated oven on a moderate to high heat until cooked.
Nuriye used a pkt of something for the top but you can use some sweetened labne with a bit of lemon in it.
