  4. Hello!
    I've been reading your blog and I really love all your cute recipes!! I'm thinking of making this when I am free!

    Just a question though, I notice you use yoghurt for some of your steam cake recipes. Will the cake still turn out fine if i remove that?
    Thanks :)

    1. I've only tried for 2 days in the fridge and it's still fine, but need to warm up before eating as they aren't as mice straight out from the fridge.
