I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted these pastries. I mixed self raising flour, butter and yogurt and the end result was a soft and buttery pastry without any sugar at all. This is because the yogurt makes it soft and moist and it adds to the flavour. Also if you add 2 tsp of any essence you like (I chose vanilla and orange) you will get a delicate and fruity taste without any need for sugar.

You can fill your pastries with jam or chocolate spread too if you wish.

These are incredibly quick: it only took me 20 minutes to prepare them and then I just pop them for 15 minutes in the oven.

You can swap butter for olive or sunflour oil if you like but you will need to add a little bit more flour.

Oh yes! My ideal recipe.

  • Prep Time : 20 minutes
  • Cook Time : 15 minutes
  • Yield : 4



In a bowl mix the flour with the cold melted butter and the yogurt. Add the vanilla and orange essence and mix well.

Working with your hands form a smooth ball. Add extra flour if needed. The pastry should not be sticky.

Sprinkle a little flour on your worktop then roll the pastry (less than 4 mm or 0.15 inch thick) and form a circle. Cut it into 8 triangles, make a small cut at the bottom of each triangle and roll them up. Before rolling them you can add jam or chocolate spread if you like.

Line them up on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake at 180C or 350F for approximately 15 min or until golden.

    Hi Alida
    How long will they last, could I make them a few days before &
    How many will the recipe make?
    Thanks Gina

      Hi Gina, the recipe makes about 10 cakes. Because they are quite soft and moist they will last well for 4 to 5 days stored in an air tight container.
