This cake is so yummy and scrummy, I ♥ it.
Yummy yummy yummyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy and extra yummy the best thing is it’s really easy to make and it’s still tastes good after few days wohoooo :). I think my mums obsession with lemons is rubbing off on to me :)
When I first heard of yoghurt cake I thought hmmmmmmm…is that right? yoghurt cake? it really sounded wrong to me but I gave it a try and was really surprised as it tasted really nice. It’s moist but denser then a normal cake but not too dense if you get what I mean. I first tried the recipe using strawberry yoghurt a while back and my cousin really liked it and he isn’t always into cakes so I felt quite happy :), the taste of strawberrys really came through and it was so delish. I have made it a couple more times as it’s one of them cakes that is easy and doesn’t really go wrong. I also once split the cake mixture into two sandwich tins and made the victoria sponge with cream and jam ooooooo yes very very delish.
Butttttttttttttt I then thought ooooooooo why not make a version with LEMON hey hey hey (for my mum) and to make it even more interesting I wanted to add lemon curd as well oooooo yeh.
