TWD: French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze


Its insane how quickly time passes. It feels like not too long ago it was just Christmas and now we are already firmly in the middle of March! In times like this, when I am feeling stressed and busy, I sometimes wish I were still a child, when life was infinitely simpler. Although I can't go back in time, I find that there are certain foods that remind me of my childhood and never fail to bring a smile to my face. One of these foods is pound cake. 

I grew up on the Sara Lee variety. My mom was not a baker and to a child like me, it tasted absolutely delicious. Now I find it much too sweet and heavy. This week's recipe, although not technically a pound cake, certainly reminds me of one. But where the Sara Lee pound cake is too sweet, I found this just right and instead of being heavy and dense, this cake was nice and moist. 

The best testimony as to how good this cake is? One day after I baked it (and it does taste better the second day), we only had half a loaf left!

I totally agree that this cake gets better the next day (if it lasts that long). Beautiful job on your cake - agreed, way better than Sara Lee.

Pound cake is a fond childhood memory for me too. Your cake looks delicious! I'll be making this again, and again, and again.

When it's devoured that quickly, that's a very good sign :) I agree - this is much better than a Sara Lee poundcake. Beautiful job!
