Cookin’ Up Summertime Favorites: Strawberry Lemon Yogurt Cake


We’re smack dab in the middle of summer and I was in need (okay, more of a want) of a summery cake recipe. Well, strawberries and lemons scream summer to me!  I added in some yogurt for that rich, moist flavor and ta-da:  summer serendipity!

This cake recipe is fairly simple and quick to put together. It’s perfect to take along to that picnic with family and friends or the bbq at the neighbor’s.  They’ll love having such a delish and fitting end to their meal!  Go prepared with the recipe in hand.  You’ll be asked to share 🙂
