Lemon Yogurt Cake

Posted on

I have always wanted to make a lemon loaf cake because I really, really love lemon. Joe, on the other hand, not so much, yet again once he took a bite of this moist cake, it went down the hatch quite nicely. Hope you had a nice Easter weekend and enjoyed the holiday with your friends and family. I took this cake to Easter dinner, but unfortunately there were so many desserts it wasn’t really necessary or needed. That’s ok, I brought most of it home and froze it!
