TGIF!!! So excited it's almost the weekend. Do you need an incredibly easy dessert recipe that tastes great, takes very little effort and can stay at room temperature for days? How about something you can also eat for breakfast or as a snack? Well, Dorie Greenspan's Mediterranean Yogurt Cake is your answer!
Last week my friend Alyssa moved back to town (yay!) and came over to catch up over coffee. I decided to make Dorie's recipe because she suggested it during her chat on Washington Post.
I made only a few minor changes to Dorie's recipe, so I will not retype it. You can find it here.
Super Easy Dessert For Entertaining: Dorie Greenspan’s Mediterranean Yogurt Cake
The recipe is made with flour, citrus zest, yogurt and oil. There is also sugar and eggs. I decided not to add the flesh of citrus to the actual cake, but to save it and serve on top of the cake with blackberries. Also, I added extra zest of lemon to the recipe.
I think this cake looks especially great in my Polish baking dish that I bought for less than $20 at Marshalls.
How beautiful does it look? So little effort, so much enjoyment!
Dorie was right: the cake is even better after it sits for a day or so. It's also awesome toasted and served with a bit of whipped cream and cherry jam. This will definitely stay in my baking repertoire.
Have a great weekend!
