Yes, I know I'm a couple days late with this week's Tuesdays with Dorie posting. My only excuse is that I've been feeling under the weather lately. I'd always intended to make this recipe, but when I got home from school each day this week, I just didn't feel like cooking or eating...mostly because my throat felt like I'd swallowed sandpaper, and I was exhausted from coughing all day. But then, I felt a little better yesterday so I decided to finally bake the French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze that Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction had chosen. But then, I was tired last night from reading and grading papers & annoyed again with more of the coughing, and I didn't get the posting done.
So, here I am...on Thursday. Late, but at least done. ;-)
This is a very easy cake to make; you need two bowls, a whisk, and only a bit of elbow grease. No stand mixer is needed. The finished product is moist and flavorful (made with ground almonds & lemon zest) and tastes better the next day (or two).
Like most people, I used orange marmalade for the glaze because I couldn't find the lemon marmalade the recipe called for.
