TWD: French Yogurt Cake

First and foremost... HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY. My favorite day of the whole entire year. I had a St. Patrick's Day Shindig over the weekend... and I have a ton of recipes to share from that, so I'll talk more about that later this week... (It's never too early to start planning for next year, eh?).

So, this week for Tuesdays with Dorie the selection was made by Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction. She chose French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze.

Ummm... SUPER, DUPER easy. Like, I was done in about 10 minutes... and one bowl! (although, technically you were supposed to pre-measure and stir your dry ingredients in a separate bowl... I didn't. I'm lazy).

I didn't use ground almonds (too lazy AND cheap), I used grapefruit zest instead of the suggested orange zest and I couldn't find Lemon Marmalade (although, I REALLY wanted to... I mean, how good does that sound?), so I opted to just smear some orange marmalade on a slice. This cake was delicious! It would be perfect on a brunch table or even for a lazy Sunday breakfast. The texture isn't as silky or rich as a pound cake, but it's not as loose and hole-y as a sponge cake. It's interesting... firm and sturdy texture, but still light and cake-y.

Dude, I can't explain it... you just need to go here for the recipe and make it.

Yum! This sounds great. I love quick and easy--any "lazy" recipe that turns out something as delicious as you've made this cake sound, well, that's a keeper recipe! Man, this looks so delicious. I can't wait to whip up this recipe.

I like the idea of grapefruit zest!

It did have an interesting texture. Very good, but interesting. Yours looks great.

Your cake looks great! I couldn't find lemon marmalade either - maybe next time!
