Lemon Yogurt Cake

6 Mar

Yesss another <3 lemony baked good <3 !!! :D I made this cake and the previous one (Lemon layer cake with lemon curd) at the same day but I didn’t have time to post this any earlier. I was so busy with my last week in the latest course at school, which had me crazy with 2 exams in a week 8-}

This is the purrrfek choice for those who love lemon and yogurt. The cake can be served either after meals as dessert, or at breakfast, or brunch, or … anytime of the day :P It’s very easy to make, especially if you have someone help u grating the lemon zest n squeezing the juice :D (unfortunately I had to do everything myself – poor me!!!)

The Lemon Yogurt Cake recipe below is adapted from Ina Garten in the Barefoot Contessa show. Continue reading

Lemon Layer Cake with Lemon Curd

2 Mar

My mom actually wanted me to try making a cake with whipped cream so that I can learn myself how to work w whipping cream. At the same time I was very eager to do sth with lemon, so I decided to make this one. It didnt turn out absolutely perfect because I did not follow every-single requirement from the original recipe :P However, the final work still turned out great, not over-sweet, lovely tanginess from the lemon curd, creamy whipped cream. Oh just thinking about it makes me crave the cake again :( For those that prefer a sweeter taste, increase the amount of sugar for the lemon curd and the whipped cream ;)

The original recipe (Lemon layer cake with lemon curd and mascarpone) is from Bon Appétit, April 03 issue but I modified them a bit during the process. For example I didnt use any mascarpone, and I always use less than the required amount of sugar :P Here is the recipe that I used, not the original one. Continue reading

Here is the recipe for Stewed Beef with Ginger: Continue reading
