Lemon Yogurt Cake

This is a rare recipe from Ina Garten. Not rare because I don’t cook from her books often… I do. Nor is it rare because it tastes so very good and is a snap to make… Ina’s recipes never fail me. It’s rare because it doesn’t require any butter and Ina’s recipes usually do. Lots of butter, in fact.

Instead, it uses vegetable oil and yogurt, which apparently makes it good for you. I hope so, as I’m gonna eat the entire cake over the next week or so.

Some ingredients:







lemon zest

In the past, I’ve found that putting the glaze on this cake is lovely at first but sticky in the end. Plus, I didn’t have any confectioners’ sugar which is half of the ingredients for the top. So I left the glaze off.

Ready to eat… especially good with Earl Grey tea:
