This yogurt pound cake is the perfect dessert or snack. In summer this dessert is just ideal. It is fresh, acid and sweet at the same time. My favorite way to eat it is with a cup of tea (that is not that hot) or a cold chai latte for example, or even just a plain old glass of milk. It is really good just like that.
Here in Madrid the cold times have gone away, and we are going through a mid time heading to heat for some days alternating with rainy ones until finally it will be the heat of the summer. And with it, desserts should be fresh, and simpler, something precisly like this: lemon pound cake, that calls for yogurt which makes it extra fluffy and rich.
To this pound cake, you can add a simple confectioners sugar and lemon glaze on top. You just mix it and it’s done. Its texture can be runny or thicker, depending on how you prefer it. Once the pound cake has cooled down, just add some glaze on top to decorate. It goes great woth this glaze.
The best thing is it can be made using the individual yogurt container the recipe calls for, and if you don´t have one just measure the ingredients as you would with any other recipe.
