The Secret Recipe Club - March !




If you've visited ChitChatChomp before, you'll already know that I'm a little obsessed with citrus cakes.  Lemon, lime, orange...bring it on....I'm not fussed.

So whilst looking through my assigned "secret blog" for this months Secret Recipe Club Challenge, I broke into a little happy dance when the following words shouted out to me....


French Lemon Yoghurt Cake
(to see original recipe, click here)




I realise the whole point of joining this club was to get out of my comfort zone and find new inspiration, but how could I possibly go past a recipe with French in the title.....it's just the way I roll.....




I really enjoyed the dense texture of this cake, however with the added syrup at the end, I have to admit that I did find it a little too sweet for my taste buds.  This does make the cake wonderfully moist, but I wonder if I'd have preferred it without? 




My assigned blog for March is the lovely Jesse from Vanderbilt Wife - a wife, mother of two and writer who started her blog way back in 2006.

It was a pleasure trolling through all your recipes Jesse and I look forward to returning soon!

  2. Totally lovely cake! I have to admit that I love cakes with syrup soaked into them, so I bet this recipe would be perfect for me! :)

  8. I love how dense this looks. I think you could eat it with a spoon and a big blob of whipped cream. Beautiful photo under the recipe. Makes it extra special!
