Lemon & Yogurt Cake

So, we were back into winter mode this weekend πŸ™Β  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.Β  I had to go out to pick up something and it was so ridiculously cold but freezing!!! brrrr hahahaha.Β  Yesterday, was still a cold day but at least there was sun πŸ™‚ 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!!!!!Β  πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚



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 addingΒ  flour.Β  When it was finally ready I tired a piece…:)Β  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…:)Β  The end result was a Lemon Cake with a lovely texture balanced with a very delicate taste.Β 

This recipe was a fabulous surprise.Β  πŸ™‚

Ingredients:

1 cup Yogurt

1 cup Sugar

1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour

1 cup Milk

5 Eggs

1/2 cup Lemon Juice

P1010309

Lemon juice.

P1010310

and all the remaining ingredients, milk, butter, vanilla extract.Β  ( the butter should not be hot it should be cooled off before adding it into the mix).

P1010311

In a buttered baking pan add in the cake mix and bake at 180 degrees for 40-45 minutes.

Once cake has cooled off top with Power Sugar…

Thank you Martha for this recipe, it was delightful…
