Meyer Lemon Yogurt Cake Recipe

03.19.13 by Jackie

I've made this cake recipe for years. I think I found the recipe when I was a little girl on the back of vanilla sugar packets that are commonly available in France. I haven't changed the base of the cake batter much since then.

The great part of this recipe is that the measuring tool is the yogurt container. And after making it once, you'll probably never have to refer to the recipe again. Simply remember "1, 2, 3, ½, 3": 1 yogurt, 2 measures of sugar, 3 measures of flour, half a measure of oil (½), 3 eggs, 1 packet of "levure" (baking powder) and 1 packet of vanilla sugar.

Instead of serving the cake plain, which by the way is great with tea, I flavored the cake with Meyer lemon zest and glazed it with a Meyer lemon mascarpone glaze. It was truly fantastic!

Granola, Berry & Yogurt Parfait Recipe Recipe

With the long weekend and an extra week off of school, the big girls have been staing up late and lazing it up in bed until 11am-ish the last few days. I decided they weren’t spoiled enough, so I brought them breakfast in bed. Baby Aria and I prepared the parfaits mixing fresh berries, kiwi, granola and honey-flavored yogurt. Simple, sweet, healthy and filling.

If you feel the urge to make freshly baked granola at home, my friend Sarah at Nuts About Granola offers a "bake-it-yourself" granola kit (it costs only $3.99). It has been widely available in supermarkets on the East Coast and is also available online. I’m a huge fan of their product, and you'll actually find my recipe on the back of the box! Give it a try and you’ll be as Nuts about Granola as I am.

Breakfast Wrap Sandwich Recipe

Today's post is about one of my favorite companies, California Lavash, where the ever wonderful Lilea works. California Lavash makes healthy, preservative free breads. Their lavash works amazingly well for pizzas, desserts, and in the case of this recipe, as a breakfast wrap. Anyway, if --like me-- you're stressed in the mornings because of the holiday season, here's a recipe that'll make you look like a culinary whiz without taking eons to prepare. 

Fresh fruits of your choice are layered with plain yogurt, a drizzle of honey and crunchy granola, and the whole thing is wrapped in lavash bread. It's super easy to roll out a bunch of these for all the hungry little hands in your house.

Chocolate Bat Cookies (Halloween Breakfast Recipe) Recipe

Halloween is a few days away and I've been preparing little sweet treats in anticipation of the event. For breakfast, I baked bat-shaped chocolate wafers that I paired with sweetened yogurt and fresh figs from our garden. The result is divine; the crunch from the cookies balances out the smooth texture of the yogurt, and chocolate and figs work beautifully together.

I'm going to be baking a lot more scary-looking pastries until Halloween, including my witch's fingers, funny-looking sunny side up eggs and ghost-shaped pancakes. If you have other suggestions, feel free to send me a message!

Cucumber and Yogurt Salad Recipe Recipe

I'm still working on using the cucumbers from our garden. I know my husband Lulu spent a lot of time planting all the vegetables so I try my best to make flavorful dishes using the results of his hard labor. 

Today I used Marketmore cucumbers and served them as a first course. The dish was composed of seeded, sliced cucumbers, finely chopped pickled grape leaves and diced red bell peppers. I tied the flavors of the salad together with a dressing made with yogurt, mustard and olive oil.

I understand that the process of planting, watering and caring for the vegetables requires a lot of work, so I definitely feel responsible for creating unique dishes that showcase the quality of the ingredients. Love you Lulu! Don't we make a great team?
