My love for lemon is big, friends. BIG.
I love it in EV-ery-thing. Am I alone here?
I think one of the best things about Easter is that Spring is (hopefully!) in sight. Sometimes, the weather is even warm-ish.
Maybe the sun is shining. Maybe the birds are singing (am I getting too loopy here?). But you know that even if the snow isn’t gone yet, it’s going soon and you will be laying on a picnic blanket sunbathing in no time.
Or is it just me??
I love citrus, well, let’s be honest, year round. But it is so fresh and the flavor is so bright that I think it is perfect for Easter and Spring.
I also happen to love cake (surprise!), and I love using Greek yogurt to make super light and moist cake, so here we are.
This cake is perfect with frosting, or whipped cream, a cream cheese glaze, or just a dusting of powdered sugar and some fresh berries. Pile them up on top for a showstopping dessert! You won’t regret it — I promise 😉
