Strawberry Yogurt Cake

Strawberry Yogurt Cake

A single layer cake topped with fresh strawberries and sprinkled with sugar. The sugar forms a crunchy coating over the top of the cake that is delectable with the tartness of the berries.

The cake itself is buttery and moist with a dense crumb that is perfect paired with a cup of tea or coffee. It’s the yogurt that keeps it from drying out and adds great flavor.

Don’t hold back on the berries! I did and shouldn’t of. It will look like you have too many but the cake will puff up over them and they will shrink a little during the baking process. It’s better to err on the side of too many than too few.

This is a great little cake for whipping up on a whim. It comes together quickly and bakes up like a dream. You can use a springform pan, my preference, or a pie pan as recommended in the original recipe.
