READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Redsie

From A. Lindsay Light Cooking. Baking it as I write!! You can replace the extra-thick yogurt by yogurt cheese. Delicious moist cake with a nice lemon flavour - Made holes on both sides of cake to make sure all the lemon syrup went in - was worried it would be too sour - but not at all!! The sauce with the yogurt is great too! For all lemon lovers - got to try this!!

Really great, really great!! This is a wonderful tasting combination of lemon & raspberry. When I inverted the still hot cake, I used a much larger tool [my meat thermometer!] to poke deep holes in the top of the cake! Then I brushed the glaze over it time & again until it had all soaked in! As for the sauce, I wanted it ALL! I seeded one package of the berries & left the other berries whole, finishing off the raspberry sauce as per the recipe. THEN, made the lemon cream as well, & when I served the slice of cake, I included a drizzle of lemon cream along side a drizzle of raspberry sauce! Really, really good, & I can't thank you enough for this recipe!
