Lemon Yogurt Anything Cake

I was so excited my new 9" square cake pan and juicer arrived today as it meant I finally could make this Lemon Yogurt Anything Cake. Back when I saw Smitten Kitten's post I immediately bought an organic lemon, Wyman's frozen wild blueberries, and Ronnybrook Farms Whole Milk Yogurt only to realize I was missing those crucial baking implements.

Actually my pan had rusted and was forced into early retirement. Anyway, sometimes I just get ahead of myself. Like now I'm really, really tired and I have lots of other cooking to write about, but I just have to rave about this cake this very minute before I go to sleep eagerly anticipating eating more for breakfast in morning.

Between putting it together during Gossip Girl's commercial breaks, trying to use two tablespoons of baking powder NOT two teaspoons, and scooping sugar onto the floor instead of the measuring cup I can't believe it turned out. I suppose that tells you how easy it is. As I rushed off to my room to make sure I didn't miss the (anticlimactic) big plot development, my roommate pointed out we had a tv in the living room that would have made my life easier. Why didn't I think of that?

This cake is perfect; the best cake-bread-muffin I have made to date. It is light, fluffy, moist, and delicately flavored. I already, like a glutton, ate three little slices. I can't wait to try other variations. Don't miss out. Make it now.


  1. This sounds delicious! Apparently, I love kitchen appliances. Rafe just got a food processor... It's like the best thing ever! I made mango coconut cupcakes yesterday :)

  2. It is delicious! I love kitchen appliances too. If only I had room for them in my little kitchen. If I could fit one more thing it would be a stand mixer followed by an ice cream maker or a food processor.

    Your cupcakes sound pretty good right about now. Did you use the food processor to make them? I've never used one.

  3. I did use a food processor. I try to use it to make everything! Haha. It chops things really finely. It also mixes the dough really well. Yesterday I made pineapple macaroons. Yummy! Although, I didn't use the processor for that. :)

  4. Um. Wow. Macaroons look hard. Where is your write up? :)

  5. I took pictures.... in hopes of writing a post... a la sarah... but, alas, I'm much too lazy :)

  6. Story of my whole lazy blog. Send me the picture at least? :)
