If you’re after a lemon cake, then look no further! This lemon yogurt cake is moist and dense and its sweet, sticky syrup is the icing on the cake. Literally.
I love lemon anything. Lemon cookies, lemon curd, lemon meringue pie and lemon cakes are just some of the ways I enjoy eating lemons. Oh, and lemon pudding. That stuff is pretty amazing.
This lemon cake is no exception. I was searching for an easy go-to lemon cake recipe that’s wasn’t too lemony, nor too sweet. I was after something quick and simple that didn’t require many ingredients either.
Enter this lemon yogurt cake. It ticks all my boxes: it’s sweet, moist and is very quick and simple to make. In fact, I had all the ingredients on hand when I went to make it. The lemon glaze is something quite wonderful too. When poured on the hot cake, it seeps through and adds moisture and sweetness to the already moist and sweet cake. Just perfection.
I baked my cake in a large 9″ pan as it takes a shorter amount of time to cook. Plus, a thinner cake means big slices, right?
