French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade

Tuesdays with Dorie again, and the choice this week, comes from Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction. She chose the French Yogurt Cake with a Marmalade Top. As Dorie says in her Baking Book, this is a very popular cake in France. Each family having their own recipe that is handed down through the generations. She describes it as a cross between pound cake and sponge cake. I say that I would have to agree on that.

I didn't have any Lemon Marmalade on hand as the recipe suggest, so I used Orange Marmalade instead, and did not strain it. I flavored my cake with a little rum extract. I thought it was pretty good. It is Dorie's suggestion that you serve it with a fruit compote. Which would be an excellent accompaniment, when fresh in season.

You can find this recipe in Dorie's Baking Book on pages 224 - 225, or go to Liliana's website. Liliana also used Orange Marmalade.

We give this 4 Glasses of Milk,

Mmm.. your cake looks great! I enjoyed it too, and used raspberry preserves for the glaze. It was good, but next time I want to stick with citrus.
