THE RECIPE

Lemon Lavender Greek Yogurt Pound Cake

Pound cake without the pounds

You know we’re big fans of Greek yogurt over here at NoshOnIt. Whether you make your own or use it as a creative substitute in other dishes, it’s quickly becoming one of our new favorite ingredients. But did you know you can bake with it also? We didn’t until we stumbled across this elegant (and deceptively simple!) recipe from Cassie of Bake Your Day. This (quarter of a) pound cake gets a tangy zing from both lemon juice and lemon zest in the batter which pairs perfectly with the floral, delicate aroma of lavender that laces through the cake. Using Greek yogurt keeps the cake moist and fluffy when baking. Make one big loaf to keep at home for breakfast throughout the week or bake up a few smaller ones as a tasty gift for friends or family.

For Cassie, developing recipes is about much more than just putting food on the table. It’s about the love that we put into each and every dish and the people we share each bite with. It’s about the experiences and conversations that happen in the kitchen that make every meal special. We’re especially fans of her Wednesday Ramblings series where she gives us a bit more of a personal glimpse into her life. Whether you’re looking for a creative quick meal for dinner tonight or an indulgent treat to satisfy your sweet tooth, Cassie has it!
