Lemon Strawberry Yogurt Bundt Cake

While we're on the subject of fruity desserts, here's another that will knock your socks off!

This recipe is originally from A Spicy Perspective. It's lemony, strawberry-ey, tangy, sweet, and oh so delicious! We vamped up the presentation a little by adding strawberries into the 'hole' of the bundt cake and thickening the glaze for a drizzle look. Without further ado, here's the recipe:

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
3 TB lemon juice, divided
Zest of 1 lemon
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8 oz plain (or vanilla) Greek yogurt
12 oz fresh strawberries diced (plus 1 cup diced strawberries for center-optional)
1 cup powdered sugar (might need a little more to thicken the glaze)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.

2. Sift together the 2 1/4 cups of flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix in the lemon zest and set aside.

3. With an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in 1 TB lemon juice. Alternate beating in the flour mixture and  the yogurt, mixing just until incorporated.

4. Toss the strawberries with the remaining 1/4 cup of flour. Gently mix them into the batter.

5. Pour the batter into the Bundt pan. Place in the oven and reduce the temperature to 325 degrees. Bake for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

6. Allow to cool 20 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.

7. Once cooled, whisk together the remaining 2 TB of lemon juice and the powdered sugar. If you want the look in the picture above, add a little more powdered sugar until you have a thick (but not too thick) glaze. Pour the glaze into a ziploc bag, cut a small hole in the corner of the ziplock back and drizzle from the center to the outside of the cake back and forth.
*Make sure the cake and the glaze are cool.

8. Before serving, cut about a cup of strawberries and place in the center of the bundt cake (optional).

*And what better time to read your child a good strawberry book than while you are eating a slice of this yummy strawberry cake. Here are a couple of my faves!
