TWD: French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze


I was really happy to see that this week's TWD pick was a nice simple quickbread that I could eat for breakfast or as a simple dessert.  I love things made with yogurt, but I am not such a fan of marmalade.  So I decided to make my own, marmalade-y glaze with grapefruit and meyer lemon.  I overcooked it a bit, so it was super sticky, and my cake was a bit underdone despite a tester coming out clean!  Bother!  But all in all, this is a tasty cake I would make again, with a delicate flavor from the almonds and citrus zest.
I have this great new fozen yogurt from Trader Joes, which is plain yogurt flavored.  A scoop of it was lovely with the cake!

This week's pick was from Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction.  Check out the recipe on her blog, or on page 224 of Baking, From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan

That's why I poke my cakes at least three times in different spots lol Nice touch with the marmalade. I was also going to make my own but went with a lemon curd instead. Looks great :)

I don't care for marmalade either so I made mine into a strawberry cake.

Yours look darn good. I hope you saved me a slice. ;)

Meyer lemon and grapefruit glaze! That sounds wonderful! Great job!

Wow, your glaze sounds delicious! I just used a little melted raspberry preserves. Which worked well, but I'd really like to taste it with a citrus-y glaze.
