Lemon & Yogurt Cake

So, we were back into winter mode this weekend 😦  It started on Friday with the high winds coming in, and then we woke up on Saturday morning to snow…and the temps hitting a lovely -7.  I had to go out to pick up something and it was so ridiculously cold but freezing!!! brrrr hahahaha.  Yesterday, was still a cold day but at least there was sun 🙂 that’s it for the weather conditions in NL.. I really have had enough of the winter mode can we please switch to Spring Mode NOW!!!!!  🙂

I made this lemon cake recipe that was given to me by a dear friend of mine Martha who lives in Greece. Martha is so sweet, we were chatting the other day, and she mentioned that she would like to give me to a few of her recipes for my blog. One of the recipes is her Lemon Cake with yogurt, the minute I saw this I knew this is one recipe I had to try asap, because I love anything that has lemon in it. 🙂

I had to tweak this recipe a bit because the original recipe called for a specific kind of Phyllo Dough which doesn’t exist here, and I also tweaked it by adding  flour.  When it was finally ready I tired a piece…:)  I gave a few pieces to my close friend Lenneke (who is also my neighbor), my brother came by so gave him a few pieces…:)  The end result was a Lemon Cake with a lovely texture balanced with a very delicate taste. 

This recipe was a fabulous surprise.  🙂
