TWD - French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze

This weeks recipe was chosen by Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction. Please visit her blog for the recipe! I was happy to see that this weeks recipe was simple and Dorie called it "foolproof"! Yeah! I skipped last weeks TWD because I made three cakes for my coworkers and just couldn't find the time to squeeze in the custard. I was really surprised at how lemony the yogurt cake turned out using only zest and no juice.

Although Dorie instructs us to strain the marmalade and gently brush it the glaze on the cake tops, I decided on a more rustic look and basically spread my marmalde directly on top of the cake! I think it looks pretty cool with the chunks of orange peel.

Instead of making a large loaf or a round cake, I baked eight mini loaves instead. They were super moist and delicious. Yum!


Please check out the TWD bakers to see what they're up to this week and thanks for stopping by. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I love the idea of the mini loaves and they look great. I also like the rustic approach a lot. I thought that straining the marmalade was the biggest pain of making the cake. Although that's not saying much because the cake was so easy to make this week.

I missed the instructions to strain the marmalade. Your loaves look great! I loved this recipe. It was so deliciously simple.

I didn't bother straining it either, and it was delicious and pretty!

Oh! Yeah... not straining the marmelade is very fine by me, why waist those yummy little tidbits anyways!?

And how cute is that mini loaf, I ask you! Bravo, Kimberley!

This looks really, really good! I didn't use the marmalade but had it with plain yogurt and lemon curd, really good.

I love the look of your mini loves with the 'unstrained' marmalade. I didn't strain my marmalade either. Glad you enjoyed the recipe. Thanks for stopping by.
