Tuesdays With Dorie 33: French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze



This is a recipe I have been looking forward to baking for a long time.  Honestly, I didn't have much clue about what the cake would be like, but the name just sounded delicious to me.  Luckily, Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction chose it for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe.



This is the type of cake that you can just keep eating and eating.  There's a savouryness to it that comes from the yogurt, but it is still sweet enough to satisfy those cravings.  It is also incredibly moist- due to the addition of oil, and also from the glaze.  Dorie recommends a Lemon Marmalade glaze, however I just used Orange Marmalade, as that is what I had on hand.  This cake would be really good with a dollop of Lemon Cream on top too.



Traditionally, this cake is meant to be baked in a loaf tin, however I have been dying to try out my new mini bundt pan and this has been the first chance I've had to use it so I couldn't resist!  They turned out really cute, and they are the perfect size for a quick snack.  Next on my list is a mini loaf tin.
