Lemony and French-styled

It has been mentioned before that I have cravings for lemon- flavored things from time to time, sometimes of gargantuan heights even. A glance through a recipe book recently presented a recipe that set my mouth watering. Therefore, this past weekend I knew I was destined to bake this simple dessert.

It meets the needs of any lemon craving, it contains yogurt, howbeit, whole milk, and has the most appealing name of "French-style". Claire likes anything French which is delightful since she spent a year in Paris several years ago.

This cake was amazing! One layer bursting with lemon and sugar in every bite. The recipe called for plain yogurt that was not fat free or nonfat. This was a small challenge, I altered the recipe by using Stoneyfield's French Vanilla (there's the French once again) whole cream on top yogurt. I thought anything that tasted that marvelous out of the container had to make a fantastic cake.

We carried it with us to visit my in-laws yesterday afternoon. Every last crumb was devoured. Now I will just have to make another one!

I can't remember if I commented on your new look here, but I really like this. I need some "enhancement" on my blog, too. It's pretty boring right now.

Lemons. Oh goodness, my mouth is watering looking at that cake! When I was expecting our oldest, I craved lemons and salt. I could sit and eat a bag of lemons and salt every night for three weeks. I must have been low in Vitamin C! :oD

My white wine cake recipe? I'll post it in a few days. So easy, but so good. It reminds us of Friendship bread, but without the feeding of the starter for ten days. And quick because you use a yellow cake mix.

Lemon is my favorite flavor for sweets. When I was younger, I used to down a carton of lemon heads as if they were jelly beans.

We have that book at the library and I thought about checking it out...maybe I will.

Mmmmm! That sounds delicious! Lemon is such a refreshing flavour and always makes me think of summertime.

I love your new header! It's fun to pop by and see what changes you've made to your blog.
