TWD French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze



This week it was Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction who chose the recipe and I must tell you that is a very common recipe in Italy too ! Usually this recipe is the only one some people know because it's easy to remember if you use the yogurt 'cup' as a mesure ( 1 of yogurt 2 of sugar 3 of flour 1 of oil, 3 eggs, lemon zest and 1 envelope baking powder) the nice change Laurie made are the almond flour and the marmalade glaze .
Please visit Liliana for the recipe and all the others TWDers for more cake !

I'm almost sure those are your own lemons... and I'm jealous!

I remember traveling to Ventimiglia, San Remo and Genoa in May... and admiring for the first time, lemon trees! Oh! WOW! I always had a very special thing for lemons, I always have them in my house, to me... their the most luxurious fruit of all.

I envy Italians... for they have lemon trees!

Beautiful, Natalia.

Natalia, that cake looks professional - so fresh with all those lemon slices. I hope you liked it as much as we did. And thanks for the yogurt-cup measurments! I want to make it that way some time.

That's how we make it here in France, too! We use the yougurt cup to measure! I do make it with soy yougurt, but it's still nummy! Yours is just beautiful, Natalia!
