May I introduce you to the French yogurt cake, courtesy of Chocolate and Zucchini.
A bit spongy, slightly sweet, and scented with citrus from the lemon and tangerine zest I mixed into the batter. The perfect vehicle for sweetened strawberries. Whipped cream would have been perfect, but since I was already living large and eating dessert on a Tuesday, I decided a little yogurt would be more appropriate. Whipped cream on Tuesday is a slippery slope, leading to cookies on Monday and brownies on Thursday. While I love a good dessert, this girlish figure doesn't come without a bit of discipline. That being said, I would love to make this again for a dinner party, and in that case I would top with a mix of fresh berries and a dollop of sweetened whipped cream.

Turns out it was darker in my kitchen than I realized!
