My Big Fat Greek Yogurt Bundt - I Like Big Bundts
Day 25 of I Like Big Bundts: 30 Days of Bundt Cakes
My Big Fat Greek Yogurt Lemon Bundt

If there is any movie moment that everyone identifies with the has got to be My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

It's a Bundt. Boont? BundTT. Bonk?
There's a hole in this cake.

And then the Greek family puts a flower pot in the center.

Today, on Day #25 (five days to go!!!! I feel like I'm on mile 25 of a strange 30 day marathon where you actually GAIN weight going through it...must rethink this exercise campaign soon)... I give you My Big Fat Greek Yogurt Lemon Bundt!

I took the Barefoot Contessa's awesome Lemon Yogurt Cake and bake it up in a 10-cup Bundt. It didn't fill that Bundt pan, so you can make it in a small 6-cup Bundt too. I used 2% plain Greek yogurt instead of her full-fat regular yogurt.

I love that this has TWO lemon glazes. Awesomeness.
You pour a warm lemon syrup over the cake while hot...

...and then a glaze after it cools.

I thought it most appropriate to use my Chrysanthemum Bundt from Nordic Ware for this flower cake! Don't you just love the mini-Gerber daisy?! One of my favorite flowers!

Yeah, yeah. Come back tomorrow for another Bundt. I hope you aren't getting sick of these yet...because I'm close to having H1N1Bundt1. :) No, my love of the Bundt remains strong...I just need a vacation for a few days after National Bundt Day (November 15th)! See you tomorrow!

Gerber daisy is my favorite flower! They look so pretty. And that cake looks delectable.

Double lemon glaze - YUM-O. As for getting tired of your bundts - no way. If you're gonna take a vaca make sure it's not too long.

This cake looks amazing! I have been reading every day of "I like Big Bundts" and it's been one amazing cake after the next!! You are awesome!

For some reason I was expecting the TWD bundt to be doing double duty here, but I'm thrilled to see this lemon confection instead. Gerber daisies make their own celebration but when you add a delicious cake it's an over-the-top event! Yogurt cakes are so fab.

I love the chrysanthemum bundt. It is whimsical and a bit sassy. Long live bundts!

PhillyGirl said... [Reply to comment]

That cake looks so delish and moist... I'd buy that fancy pan just to make this cake but I bet it's still fab made in a regular one.

Ha-ha! I actually remember that part.

I've made this cake and I'll be honest the first day I wasn't impressed. Now the second and third days were a whole other story. YUM! Yours looks so pretty.

I love this lemon cake. It is my current favorite recipe. The gerbers are also lovely- they were in my wedding bouquet.

Jacki said... [Reply to comment]

I've actually made this cake and it's the yummiest of all! Baked in this petal pan it's beautiful too! My daughter bought a pan like this for my birhday present. Yes, she's a good girl!!

I can't believe National Bundt Day is coming up so quick! Sunday! I better get baking. Of course, it probably couldn't come quicker for you.

Your bundt looks beautiful and yummy, as always.

Wow, check out all those bundt cakes! I haven't read each and every one of your bundt posts (though I know I should) but do you have a fav. bundt cake. One that you would make over and over? I've made the Choco Cinn w/ Mocha Icing recently...yummm!

katskitchen, I'm going to post my favorite on National Bundt Day! Chocolate Cinnamon Bundt!

I have a huge thing of sour cream I need to use up - what do you think about using it in place of the greek yogurt? I've made the original recipe in a loaf pan before and it's great.

You have quite a collection of bundt pans. You have inspired me to dust mine off and bake with them.

Quite a feat you've undertaken, each cake is awesome, and this lemon yogurt bundt is scrumptious!!! And... I'm loving that pan!

Beautiful cake!

Is there a trick to getting the glaze to set up so perfectly on the cake? My pans are the traditional bundt shape, but I've never had luck getting the glaze to look this beautiful.

Ha! My Big Fat Greek Wedding is one of our favorite movies. Every time I make a bundt I inevitably hear "There's a hole in this cake," or some other line from the movie:)
