Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine flour, oat bran, almond flour (or flour), baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Combine 3/4 cup yogurt, brown sugar, egg, oil, and almond extract (if using) in a small bowl. Stir the yogurt mixture into the flour mixture just until combined.

  • Combine orange juice and preserves in a small bowl. (Refrigerate the batter and filling in separate airtight containers for up to 3 days. For single servings, see Tips.)

  • To serve, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat six 6-oz. custard cups or ramekins with cooking spray. Set in a shallow baking pan.

  • Spoon 1/3 cup of the batter into each prepared cup. Bake until the edges are firm but the centers are still slightly doughy, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven. Spoon the filling onto the center of the cakes and sprinkle with almonds. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 9 minutes more. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

  • Combine strawberries and the remaining 1/3 cup yogurt in a small bowl; spoon onto the warm cakes.

Tips

Equipment: 6-oz. custard cups or ramekins

Tips: To serve one cake, fill one custard cup or ramekin and bake as directed (Steps 3-4), using 1 Tbsp. filling and 1 1/2 tsp. almonds. Serve with 1 Tbsp. topping.

Sugar Substitute: We do not recommend a sugar sub for this recipe.

These were quite tasty and to know they were made with whole wheat flour/bran was a benefit. I had to make a few substitutions because I was not able to find an item at our local store or I didn't have it on hand. I used oatmeal with oat bran from Quaker Oats because our store didn't sell just oat bran. I only had orange juice with mango in it, but I don't think it changed the taste much; if any. My only complaint is I found the directions difficult to follow while looking at the recipe on line. I had to keep scrolling back and forth. Perhaps instead of using headings such as "step 1 step2", it would have been better to group once you've combined the yogurt mixture in to the flour mixture. Then, proceed with a heading such as "filling" and then "topping". Read More
