French Style Yogurt Cake with Lemon | www.tasteandtellblog.com

I had a craving for lemon cake last night. Actually, I have had a craving for lemon cake since I first saw this recipe. So what do I do?? I don’t make dinner, but I make cake instead!!

I love when people go back and edit a blog entry and it shows up on my feed. This was the case for this lemon cake. I had this entry pop up over at Orangette and it has been stuck in my head ever since. I just happened to have some yogurt in my fridge that needed to be used, and although I only had one lemon, I substituted bottled lemon juice for the remaining juice and it worked. This was a wonderful cake. It had a different texture than most cakes I have made, but I found it very pleasant, and perfect for a nice, refreshing dessert. In my opinion, it didn’t need anything added – it was perfect as is. But this could also be a very versatile recipe and could be used as a great base for many other creations. So, go over to Orangette and give this wonderful cake a try!

On an un-related note, today was a very good day. As my husband and I were watching a movie on tv this afternoon and there was a knock on the door. I jumped up excitedly – I knew what it was. I opened the door to a package on the ground as the postman walked away….My books had arrived!!!! I have been eagerly awaiting these books – I am so excited to crack them open and give them a try!!

    The Dorie book will never leave your side I promise! It has some amazing recipes (although, I admit I have yet to cook from it, purely because I have so many recipes to choose from!!).
    And I love your lemon cake!

    Start with Dorie, she’s my baking God!

    I have the pasta book and just popped a lasagna into oven after making fresh pasta.

    I’m still hoping someone will bring me The Perfect Scoop or else I’m buying it myself.

    Look at the juice from that cake. Oh my, I would love a slice of that right now.

    Lucky girl to get all of those great books. I am jealous.
