French Yogurt Cake (Tuesdays with Dorie)
My Open Letter

Dear Liliana,
How did you know? How did you know that this cake is my soulmate? I love this cake! I want to try it on a plane, in a train, and with orange zest, strawberries and mint, and with some lime.

Thanks for a great pick. - Mary the Food Librarian

I made mine with Greek yogurt from Trader Joe's and baked it in a 9" cake pan.
I split the layer and layered lemon curd in the middle.

I just topped it with powdered sugar...Dorie uses lemon marmalade and that sounds delicious too!

What a coincidence! I just tried this recipe the other day. My niece and nephew loved it! I also did without the marmalade glaze. The cake is already sweet without it. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Your photo is making me want a slice!

Now I really want strawberries. And lemon curd. Your cake is lovely with the powdered sugar on it.

Elyse said... [Reply to comment]

Wow, your cake looks divine! How did you slice your cake into such perfect layers?? I can never get mine so even. That lemon curd makes for a divine filling. So delicious!

Oh, gorgeous as always, Mary :) I love the elegant simplicity of it.

I recently made two jars of lemon curd. I think I'll try this and the triple layer lemon chiffon as well. Thanks for the inspiration!
