TWD:French Yogurt Cake with Marmelade Glaze


I just barely made this weeks TWD in time (for my yogurt that is) seems the stuff was ready to go off! I'm knee deep in cake making for my trial wedding cake at the moment, but as this seemed so nice and my fiance has been looking very hurt at all the baking and no cake for him to eat ;) I decide to give this a go!.
It was a cinch to make, but I was worried about the darkness of the top. Well despite its color it was not crisp or burned tasting. I found my cooking time was almost an additional 15 minutes the max recommended
I had no trouble finding some lemon marmelade to use for the glaze and it was delicious! I also increased the lemon in the batter with a good tsp of lemon extract in addition to the zest.

Be sure to check out the rest of the TWD blogroll to see how everyone else got on with their cakes!

Same thing happened with mine as far as the browning. I LOVED this cake, it smelled so good while cooking and tasted wonderful :) I paired it with simple lemon curd. YUM!

I just knew that you would be able to find lemon marmalade.

Americans don't love it like you guys do over there.


Brilliant!

The 'browned' loaf is beautiful in color. And the marmalade oozing off the end. Perfect.

Your cake looks delicious! I really liked this recipe. I have to say that I'm very impressed that you're making your own wedding cake! I made one for a friend, but wouldn't attempt to do my own. Congrats!
