Vanilla Yogurt Cake with Trader Joe’s lemon curd

Spring is officially here and this quick and easy cake is amazing for special occasions or a fancy after lunch tea party with my girls. They ask for it all the time and Auston and I love it too.

It’s rare for me to find a dessert that I like that doesn’t include chocolate so it’s safe to say this one is special.

Serve with Trader Joe’s Lemon Curd or your favorite jam or honey. It’s even delicious on its own which makes it a great choice to send to class parties where the extra mess and sugar of frosting is not always welcome!

Happy first day of Spring!


1 cup butter, softened

2 cups sugar

2 1/4 cups flour

1/2 tsp baking soda
