How to Make Lemon Yogurt Coffee Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1CAKE PREPARATION: For The cake, coat a 3-quart bundt or tube pan with 1 tablespoon of the butter and dust pan with 1 tablespoon of the flour. Separate the eggs and set aside.
  • 2Grate 2 teaspoons lemon zest and squeeze 1/3 cup lemon juice. Beat remaining butter and the sugar in a bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks, one at a time. Beat in lemon zest, lemon juice and yogurt.
