Yogurt cake is very delicious on its own in the middle of the afternoon or first thing in the morning with a warm drink. The yogurt really makes it nice and soft with a slight tangy tone coming through. You get supercharged from the lemon zest and the lemon drizzle. It’s an everyday cake that could easily be dressed up for any occasion. Why not give it a try? Soon it will be added to your recipe repertoire.
