Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake

In case you haven’t noticed, we have been on a strawberry kick for a while in our house! Chocolate Chip Cheesecake with Strawberry Compote and Strawberry Shortcake Bars have become family favorites this year! But we just can’t stop with the strawberries… And this Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake has now been added to the favorite Strawberry desserts line-up!

The twins have become obsessed with chocolate, cake and cookies.

Now that they are getting a little bigger, they are pulling up chairs to the counter and asking a billion questions about what I am making. And of course, they want to taste it!


I hear a million times… “I lick it?” every time they are in the kitchen with me!

Their little personalities are really coming out now. I just love how they are becoming more and more expressive.  Jada is such a ham. She makes goofy faces at everyone trying to get a reaction every chance she gets. 

Jazzy is just as hilarious with her faces. But she adds head nods to the mix to show a little uniqueness.

I took the girls to lunch as a special treat after our photo session the other day. They cracked me up with the silly conversations and faces the entire meal. 

I love these little girls so much. They have personality for days! My life has been so enriched by these little crazy people. I am very blessed.

‘Dis cake makes my tummy happy!

Jazzy loves this Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake! She told me, “dis cake makes my tummy happy!” after every bite. I had to hide the cake from her. She can climb the counters and nothing on the counter is safe from her little hands.

This cake can be made in a 9×13 pan, but I really love it in a bundt pan. The bundt pan shape makes for a pretty presentation with the lemon glaze dripping over the sides. My bundt pan is one of my favorites in the baking cupboard.

Frankly, I consider the bundt pan to be an under appreciated pan in the kitchen. I love that mine is non-stick. It helps to release the cake with ease!

The trick to a clean release of the cake from a bundt pan is to allow it to cool at least 20 minutes in the pan, then turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely. I do speak this advice from experience!

This cake was just heavenly with a cup of coffee. I may or may not have had a slice for breakfast after I sent the kids to school. 

If a child doesn’t see it happen… it NEVER happened!

Happy Strawberry Season!

    the girls are too cute. I love their expressions. Plus that cake is looming delicious. We are attending the Strawberry festival this weekend so I need a new recipe for the fresh strawberries I will be buying.

    My kids and I LOVE strawberry season. We eat strawberries year ’round but the best are certainly when we pick them straight from the local farm. This cake looks sooooo good and I have all of the ingredients (well…I am not sure I have the pan actually). But regardless, I pinned it so I can make it for Easter.
