    This is the softest, fluffiest cake! I love it. My family loved it too. I’ve made two in three days and will make another tonight with raspberries.

  7. Carly says:

    So I forgot to add the butter! Left it melted in the microwave BUT had added about a tablespoon of yogurt extra to help mix it together and it was amazing. I used vanilla Greek yogurt and had no lemons so left the zest out. Cooked perfectly after 55 minutes. Won’t bother adding butter next time!

      Hehehe love it!
