Lemon yogurt cake
You are used to it from me, but of course this is a recipe for an easy lemon cake. Within 20 minutes you will have this delicious cake in the oven, really. With a deliciously moist yet airy result.
Are you curious how I managed to make this lemon cake so moist? The answer is yogurt! This ingredient gives the cake a creamy texture without being greasy. In this cake, I specifically chose Greek yogurt 10%, but I have made it with other (lower-fat) types of yogurt as well. All can be used, but I find that whole yogurt works best.
Lemon glaze for cake
This cake is irresistibly delicious on its own, but if you want to make it more festive, you can add a glaze. Personally, I like a nice sour lemon glaze with lemon juice. You can also combine lemon juice and Greek yogurt, but adding Greek yogurt would require you to store the cake in the refrigerator, and since cakes dry out, that is not my preference.
How to make a lemon glaze
After the cake has cooled completely, make a glaze in a small bowl using 100 grams of powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. It should be a thick but pourable glaze. Pour this over the cake and garnish with extra (yellow) lemon zest if desired. Allow to set completely before cutting and serving the cake.
