LEMON YOGURT CAKE RECIPE


LEMON YOGURT CAKE

This cake has a very refreshing scent, delicate texture, and delicious taste. Of course, you can use it to prepare a more sophisticated cake adding frosting, cream, etc. But as it is, I think is more than enough. Remember the best recipes are often done with very few ingredients. Keep it simple, it always works!

The cake is so easy to make (took me only about 5 minutes to put them together and send the batter into the oven) and though it takes a pretty long time to bake in the oven, the texture is still soft and tender. It has a pretty tight crumb so it doesn’t crumble easily when cut. It’s denser than a regular sponge/chiffon cake but much lighter than a butter cake. I love how it has just the right amount sweetness and I can’t wait to experiment more on this basic recipe – baking them into cupcakes, changing the flavors etc.

Recipe Note:

Yogurt – I used plain and full-fat Greek yogurt for this recipe. They can be easily substituted with any kind of yogurt you like – flavored, plain, non-Greek… in a pinch, sour cream can also be used also.
