Strawberry yogurt cake

A simple and fresh strawberry yogurt bundt cake sounded just perfect to me as the spring is approaching and this fresh cake filled with delicious strawberries and a fresh lemony flavor is just the right treat to have in the house.

This recipe is very easy to prepare, takes only a few minutes until is ready for baking. I always love to use fresh ingredients in my recipes and I was just lucky to find some beautiful and full of flavor strawberries at the supermarket

This cake is so soft and filled with a lot of strawberries and lemon-flavored, definitely one of the best cakes ever. My best friend is just obsessed with it now and asks for it every time she visits.

The cake is topped with a lemon glaze that is a little sweeter, but it is just the perfect tough and combination with the cake. If you don’t want to have the cake, not that sweet you can just sprinkle it with powder sugar and skip the glaze

This recipe is amazing with other fruits also, like : blueberries or raspberry.

Simple and Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake Q&A

1. How long can I store this cake ?

You can store the can for up to 3 days in an airtight container or in the fridge for up to 5 days, also in an airtight container.

2. How can I make sure that all my strawberries don’t sink to the bottom of the pan ?

This is easy, just don’t forget to toss them with 2 tablespoons of flour before you mix them in the batter.

3. How to make sure that the cake will not stick to the pan?

This reminds me of a Netflix show called Nailed It when they constantly say that the most important rule of having a good cake starts with greasing and flouring your cake pan very well before pouring in the batter.

Enjoy!
