Spring has Sprung



Spring has sprung – in my kitchen!  Our winter here in Florida actually felt like spring this year, so outside we have been reaping the benefits for a while, but our taste buds have been waiting for a hint of yummy, fresh fruity deliciousness that embodies everything that spring represents.

This recipe comes from, where else, Pinterest, but is definitely a keeper.  Although not very figure friendly, this would be great for any springtime brunch, shower or Sunday breakfast.



Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake

Original recipe from A Spicy Perspective

Print this recipe!

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

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.

***This recipe would be great as muffins also!
