5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon or rubber spatula until just combined.

Cake with cheese

2 cups of flour
½ teaspoon of salt
1 cup of yogurt
1 teaspoon of soda
1 egg
¼ cup of melted butter
1 and ½ cup of crushed cheese

Preparation:

Turn the oven to 190 ° C.
Fill the baking tray with the baking pan.
Mix the two types of flour with salt in a large bowl.
In the middle bowl, pour the yoghurt and mix the soda in it. Add the egg, melted butter and cheese. Stir.
Add the yoghurt mixture to the flour and stir with a fork, just until all is mixed up and there are no dry parts, do not overdo it.
Pour two tablespoons of oil into a flat saucer and immerse your fingers in it to form small balls with the size of a table tennis ball without having to overdo it by pressing and crushing the dough. Place the cheese on the pre-prepared tray.
Place the tray in the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until they become brownish-golden tan.

Serve them, warm with a garnish or no, as you like more. I love them most with honey and a cup of fragrant tea.
