Easy Yogurt Cake

yogurtcake

We had some yogurt that was nearing its expiration date in the fridge and I remembered the amazing Gâteau au yaourt from Chocolate & Zucchini.  An oldie, but a goodie, this cake is easy, delicious and extremely adaptable.  I used nonfat plain yogurt, used bourbon instead of rum and glazed the top with some apple cider and sprinkled toasted coconut flakes on the top of it for the last 10 minutes of baking.  You could throw some jam in between the layers, top with whipped cream, glaze with chocolate and sprinkle with hazelnuts….the possibilities are endless for this moist and tangy base.  You could also eat it plain, with a cup of coffee, for breakfast.  Cake for breakfast may help dieters.  Seriously!
