I made this cake tonight....delish! I thought the batter was not sweet enough at first, but adding the strawberries and then the glaze....it gave it a whole new twist....love the hint of lemon. The yogurt made the cake moist, as did the strawberries. Thanks for the recipe! Definitely a repeat. I took pics...wish I could upload.
