Whole Wheat Cake
My yogurt cake tonight was whole wheat -- much to my dismay I had no white flour in the house. But, we still needed cake. I mixed up the standard batter flavored with orange zest (no lemons in the house either). When the cake had cooled a bit I brushed the top with a syrup of orange juice and powdered sugar to soak some extra flavor and moisture into the cake. Whole wheat flour absorbs moisture readily and can make baked goods dry. I poured a thicker glaze (also of orange juice and powdered sugar in different proportions) over top and garnished my quick cake with toasted almonds. Easy dessert.
