Lemon Yogurt Cake Recipe @

Super easy, quick and delicious Lemon Yogurt Cake  made with lemon zest, lemon juice and  and   topped with lemon frosting.

This cake uses vegetable oil and not butter as compared with other recipes.  At first, am reluctant to try it since it contains  high sugar in the cake plus for the frosting.

Surprisingly this Lemon Yogurt Cake has a right amount of sweetness and the best part was the frosting, it gives a wonderfully lemon  flavor. This will be my new to go recipe.
