Let it snow! Easy Holiday Cake

P1140326A This is one of the cake that impressed on the Christmas table of course not the look like this. I got this bundt tin purposely for this holiday cakes. You can get it online.

You could make it as spiced holiday cake too by half the vanilla and add 2 teaspoons each of ground cinnamon and ginger and half teaspoon of ground cloves.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and put a baking sheet in at the same time.
  2. Butter or oil your large, regular or fir-tree shaped bundt tin. (I use oil-sodden kitchen paper to do this)
  3. In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time into the sugar mixture, whisking each one in with a tablespoon of flour.
  5. Fold in the rest of the flour, and add the yogurt and vanilla extract.
  6. Pour and spoon the mixture into your greased tin and spread  evenly.
  7. Place the tin on the preheated baking sheet in the oven and cook for 45 to 60 minutes until well risen and golden. After 45 minutes, push a skewer into the centre of the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is cooked. Let it sit out of the oven for 15 minutes.
  8. Gently pull away the edge of the cake from the tin with your fingers, then turn out the cake, hoping for the best!
  9. Once cool, dust with icing sugar pushed through a small sieve.

Thinking of fresh snowfall on the alps, then you will sing along Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
