I just made this and I cannot stop eat it!

Vanilla Yogurt Cake with Orange Glaze

1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 tbsp + 6 tbsp orange juice
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnut, slightly toasted

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease one 9x5x3 inch loaf pan with baking spray.

Using a stand mixer, beat together the egg, egg yolk, and sugar on medium-high speed, until it turns pale yellow, about 3 mins. Add the vanilla extract and oil, beat 1 more min, until fully incorporated.

In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

With the mixer on low speed, add half the amount of dry ingredients. Then add half the amount of yogurt, and 2 tbsp of the orange juice. Add remaining dry ingredients and followed by the remaining yogurt. Remove from mixer and finish mixing by hand using a spatula until all of the ingredients are fully incorporated.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 55-60 mins.

Remove from oven. Using a toothpick or large wooden skewer poke holes into the cake. Using a pastry brush, brush remaining 2 tbsp orange juice over hot loaf.

Let cool for 10 mins and remove from pan. Place on wire rack to finish cooling. When cool, glaze cakes.

Combine the 6 tbsp orange juice with powder sugar together with a whisk. Pour over cakes.

Scatter walnut on top.
