TWD: French Yogurt Cake With Marmalade Glaze

So good to be baking with the TWD gang again and how delightful to have it be this cake. Liliana from My Cookbook Addiction chose the cake and you can click through to her site to get the recipe.

This cake was so good and kind of a mixture of textures. It had almost a pound cake taste and yet it felt almost like a cake mix. Some people might think the cake mix comparison is a criticism, but honestly Keith prefers that to any homemade cake, so for us anyway it's a good thing.

The recipe calls for lemon marmalade to make the glaze and I never did find any. But I did find some Three Fruit Marmalade that was made from lemon, orange and grapefruit. Just the right combination of sweet and tart.

And the best surprise of all was having a slice the next day. If anything it was better the 2nd day and having it alongside a cup of coffee was a good thing. :)

I couldn't find lemon marmalade either, so I just used orange.

How delicious this looks! I bet it was great with the three fruit marmalade! I also thought it was better the second (and even third) day.

Your cake looks delicious! This recipe was a real winner at my house. I love pound cake, so I knew I would like it. Nice job!
