Last summer I went with my sister to this cute Italian store that had amazing kitchen things. Well as you can imagine, this kind of store is a food blogger’s dream. She couldn’t get me out of there. But this is where I found this cute and funny shaped cake pan. Since then I’ve been waiting for a special recipe to use it.
So I’ve been wanting to make a lemon yogurt cake for the longest time, it’s one of my favorite cakes, it’s light, it’s lemony, and it’s versatile. You can serve it with fruits, whipped cream, a lemon glaze, chocolate syrup, whatever you can think of. I decided to serve mine with berries and give it a light sprinkle of powdered sugar. What a delicious little cake.
