Lemon Yogurt Cake - How to make French Yoghurt Cake

Lemon Yogurt Cake - This is my go-to recipe for lemon cake, always perfect. The texture of this Cake is pretty unique; the edges bake up crispy, sweet, and caramelized and tastes like butter cookies right out of the oven while the inside stays moist and delicious. No one will ever guess how easy it is to make.
