Yoghurt Bundt Cake

This yoghurt bundt cake has a delightful nutty layer using pecan nuts and cinnamon. The cake was so good that I made it twice. And it lasts a week which is great if there are only two of you enjoying it.

Last month I got an email to say that our return flight from Istanbul to Cape Town had been cancelled. I can totally understand the reasoning if they did not have enough people booked on the flight. But it did not make my day in any shape or form. Dave and I discussed our options which was to either land in Istanbul very late at night, sleep at an hotel, and spend the day sightseeing. Or to spend another night in Italy. If we chose that option we could either fly into Istanbul, landing after lunch time. Or take the later flight and land at night. The earlier flight would include a free tour of Istanbul which helped sway our decision. The next step was to change the flight, and I must say that it was seamless.

I selected the flight from Naples to Istanbul, and the one from Istanbul to Cape Town and made the changes. This took no time at all and within minutes I had the new flight confirmation. As we will be leaving the airport, I needed to get an E-Visa. This too was simple and quick. I entered our details into the website, confirmed our email address and straight away I was sent the Visas. In my feedback I commented on how amazing the service was. And the Minister of Tourism emailed back to say thank you, and for us to enjoy our trip. Even though I am sure it was an auto generated response, it still made me feel good. Have you had one leg of your flight cancelled? And was it simple or difficult to sort it out?

  1. Hi Tandy, we have had a lot of trouble trying to either cancel or move our flights to the Netherlands via Air France. We couldn’t go because of Terence’s illness. They cancelled the flights but we still don’t know about our refund. It is very annoying as he had a letter from the neurologist explaining why he could fly and we let them know at least 6 weeks in advance.

  2. I love the look of this cake Tandy. I do love a bundt cake, and this looks fabulous. I really hate flying so try not to esp. these post?- covid days. Gotta fly to melbourne soon though – eek!

  3. Oh, this looks like a lovely cake, Tandy! I’ve never heard of xylitol, had to look it up. I look for it on my next visit to the health store.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
