Orange Polenta Cake with Almond & Oat Streusel

I serve it with my mom’s classic loaf cake condiment, plain yogurt mixed with a little bit of honey and vanilla extract. You can also serve it with whipped cream or just by itself. Either way, this polenta loaf cake is a delicious dessert for any teatime gathering or breakfast.

step 2
Using a whisk, mix together All-Purpose Flour (1 cup), Baking Powder (as needed), and Salt (as needed) in a large bowl. Place the Cornmeal (2/3 cup) in a separate bowl. Set aside.
step 3
Place the Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup) Granulated Sugar (1 cup), zest and juice from Orange (1/4) in the bowl of a standing mixer attached with the paddle attachment. You can do this with a hand mixer as well.

Mix on medium speed, until creamy, about 2 to 3 minutes, scraping down the bowl half way through.
step 5
Add in the Eggs (3) one at a time ensuring that they are evenly incorporated into the batter.
step 6
Add in Vanilla Extract (1 tsp), Almond Extract (as needed), Low-Fat Plain Yogurt (1/2 cup). Mix until combined, 30 seconds or so. At this point your batter may look curdled. This is normal.
