Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction chose French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze for our TWD challenge this week. I enjoy going over to Liliana's blog to check out her mouthwatering cakes.
I hurried home from work to make this cake. But first, I had to practice the violin. I am now playing as my song of the week the "May Song." A song probably any six year old could master, but I am so proud of myself. Okay, its no Beethoven's Fifth or Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, but we have to start somewhere, right? If my stocks keeps falling, I might need a second income!
Got all my ingredients together. I was really excited about this cake because I love lemon stuff. I love what lemon zest does to foods.I decided to make it in a nine inch cake pan as Dorie suggested on the side.
It was a really easy cake to mix up and bake. It came out of the pan with ease. I let it cool, cut the layer in half and filled it with Dickinson's Lemon Curd.
I was going to take it to a friend on Friday night, but I got so greedy. The lemon smell made it too tempting. I left off the marmalade glaze and just topped it with canned whipped cream. When you are in a hurry, canned whipped cream is the best! The DH and I sat down and enjoyed ourselves some cake. Just call me the cake hog. I wanted two pieces or even three, and my heart said yes, but my hips said no. Why do hips talk? Have you noticed how sometimes they can mess up even the best day you are having by their almost constant chatter.
Loved loved loved this cake. However, next time I make it and you can bet your booty there will be a next time, I will probably leave the almonds out.
Liliana thank you so much for choosing this cake this week! It was just what I needed. Check out the recipe at Liliana's blog here.
I can't leave you this week without sharing a photo of another friend with you. Have any of you heard Taylor Hicks' new cd The Distance? I think it is pretty awesome. Try it!! I'm guessing Taylor loves french yogurt cake. :) Enjoy and have a great week!
