Ginger Yogurt Cake

1 egg
1/3 cup olive oil
1 cup plain yogurt
1 cup quick oats
1 cup flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 tbls grated ginger
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbls freshly squeezed ginger juice
2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 F and grease and flour a small loaf pan. In a large mixing-bowl, combine wet ingredients. In another bowl, mix the flour, oats, baking powder and baking soda. Add the flour mixture into the yogurt mixture, and blend together. Do not mix it too much. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, and bake for 50 - 60 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

To prepare icing finely grate more ginger and strain it to get ginger juice. Mix it well with confectioner sugar. Put the icing to a sandwich size Ziploc bag and make a tiny hole at a bottom edge.
Squeeze the icing to make a nice decoration over the cake. The icing is very spicy and is giving to this cake a very gingerly flavor.
