Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake

Ok so I am seriously addicted to pinterest.  I am always looking for different craft ideas and recipes.  People find the greatest stuff.  I recently came across this cake recipe and really wanted to try it.  Now that strawberries are really coming into their own, I knew it was time to make it.  The original recipe comes from A Spicy Perspective.

This cake is moist and not overly sweet.  The strawberries are the star and the lemon is very refreshing.  This is a perfect spring/summer dessert.

If you would like to make a fresh strawberry yogurt cake…

Here’s what you need…

1 cup (2 sticks) of butter, soften

2 cups sugar

3 eggs

3 tbsp of lemon juice, divided

zest of 1 lemon

2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, divided

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

8 oz. plain Greek yogurt

12 oz. fresh strawberries, diced

1 cup powdered sugar

Here’s what you do…

Preheat the oven 325 degrees.  Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.  Sift together the 2 1/4 cups of flour, baking soda and salt.  Mix in lemon zest and set aside.

With a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add in 1 tablespoon lemon juice.  Alternate beating in the flour mixture and the yogurt.  Mix until combined.

Toss the strawberries with a 1/4 cup of flour.  Gently stir the berries into the batter.  Pour batter into the Bundt pan.  Bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  I had to cook mine for 1 hr and 20 minutes.

Allow the cake to cool completely on a wire rack.  Once cooled, whisk the powdered sugar with the remaining lemon juice.  Drizzle the glaze over the top of the cake.

This is wonderful!  I know that I will be making it again and again.  Hope your family loves it like mine does.

Go and Create!
