Strawberry Topped Yoghurt Cake

I love to bake with strawberries in the summer months, so read on for my recipe for a strawberry topped yoghurt cake,

The cake I decided to make contains Greek yoghurt which keeps it lovely and moist and gives it that delicate flavour. I added vanilla extract and lemon zest to enhance it further.

This looks like a lovely seasonal cake – I expect it would be delicious served with some Greek yoghurt (or cream) on the side. Thanks for linking to #CookBlogShare
