You can’t believe how it’s been raining in LA lately. Yesterday it was as if the skies opened up and tons of water just poured out. Today it’s cool and cloudy once again, and they’re predicting showers later today. So,what’s a girl to do when the weather is so glum. You got it, let the sun shine in!

To me, nothing says warmth and sunshine like fresh lemons. I adore the smell of freshly grated lemon zest. So that brings us to one of my all-time favorite lemon-inspired cakes. This Lemon Yogurt Cake is chock full of fresh lemon zest and lemon juice, and then topped with a tart lemon glaze. You got it baby, inside and out just pure lemon-y goodness. After the cake is baked, I take a wooden skewer and gently poke holes throughout the top of the cake. Then I pour the liquid lemon mixture over top. This makes this cake so moist and full of rich lemon flavor. This cake is actually better the day after you make it, after the juice has had time to soak in.

I like to serve this dessert for brunches or luncheons, but it’s really just your basic feel-good treat.
