Tuesdays with Dorie - French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze


This week's recipe was French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze, chosen by Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction. Thank goodness I'm baking again, lol. It was quick and easy to mix together. I chose to use flour instead of ground almonds, although I would like to try it with the almonds at some point. It made a moist, tasty cake, with the lemon adding a very nice flavor. It would be a perfect loaf cake to make to share with good friends...and I had wonderful company today while baking (thank you Christi!!). We forgot to take a picture of it before we cut into it, but that's okay! I couldn't find the lemon marmalade to make the glaze, so my cake went glaze-less, but it was still wonderful! The crust had a nice crispness to it when it was freshly baked, and we both liked that part. :)

Check out what the other TWD Bakers did with this recipe, as there were several "playing around" variations listed with the recipe.

Enjoy!!

Your cake looks good! I urge you to try the almonds.. it gave my cake an awesome taste. You're right though.. without any glaze it still tastes great with the lemon flavor. I'm glad you made it!

Great job - your cake looks perfect! I skipped the almonds too. This is a great recipe.

I made it with all flour and no glaze, too. That lemon marmalade is tough to find!
