About Brown Sugar Toffee Cake Recipe

I love this recipe for it’s the simplicity, flavour and look. Do not underestimate the power of a simple cake. This definitely is another crowd pleaser. This cake is so incredibly moist and delicious given the yogurt in it. Those sweet & salty toffee pieces thrown into the batter makes everything taste so much better.

@anjali Greek yogurt is made of full fat milk and is now available on all grocery stores across India. You can also use hung curd as an alternative to this!
