Berries are Back

Standard

I absolutely LOVE anything and everything berries and now that Summer is quickly approaching strawberries are in high demand.  I found this next recipe on Pinterest and tried it out for Clemson’s Spring game this past weekend.  I thought it was great and all my co-workers thought the same thing as they devoured it over the past few days.  The cake is easy to make, taste perfect if you make it the night before, and stays super moist with the yogurt.  I hope you all take a minute to try this bad boy out, enjoy!

Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake 

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 Tb. lemon juice, divided
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 8 oz. plain or vanilla, Greek yogurt
  • 12 oz. fresh strawberries, diced
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

 

 

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 325*. Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan (10-15 cup pan.) Sift together the 2 ¼ cups of flour, baking soda and salt. Mix in the lemon zest and set aside.

 
With an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in 1 Tb. lemon juice. Alternate beating in the flour mixture and the yogurt, mixing just until incorporated.

 
Toss the strawberries with the remaining ¼ cup of flour. Gently mix them into the batter.

 
Pour the batter into the Bundt pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Allow to cool at least 20 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Once cooled whisk together the remaining 2 Tb. of lemon juice and the powdered sugar. Drizzle over the top of the cake.
